BodyActing - At a Private View

23/01/12 & 30/01/12  This assignment took me a long time to get right. We are all give chits of paper with things happening to people at a private viewing which we had to animate. Mine was that my character drinks something and its disgusting. I started of with a reference video of which i drew keyframes. Here's the animatic to it.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CjAS-rxZLQ&feature=youtu.be[/youtube]

I was not happy with the way it turned out on maya. It was not exaggerated enough. I took another reference video and came up with this, which was much better: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhEyk8mLet0&feature=youtu.be[/youtube] It still needed to get a bit of the timing right.

Here's the final Body acting assignment. Lit the scene and rendered in mental ray. Have not had a good experience with lighting but this time i fared much better. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCnbEsfPm7U&feature=youtu.be[/youtube]
