Michael DeBrosse - Potential Pantomime

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share 2 clips that I had previously worked on that I think would be a good base for a pantomime.

In the first clip I really want to build this out as a man in a candy shop. He decides to steal and sneak a sour ball into his mouth from a container on a shelf. He dose not realize how sour it is until its too late and he needs to turn away to hide his expression from the employee standing close to him.

The 2nd Clip has dialog attached to it but due to its harsh language I would like a chance to turn this into a pantomime. My vision is that the main character is a father who has just walked into the bathroom in the morning after his son or daughter has finished using it. It has a distinct odor that he smells after entering the room and quickly turns to give his child a scolding look of discontentment. I would like to change this to add more character as it seems to be lacking uniqueness in the character actions.

A new piece if I shouldn't use these bases is the idea of a homeless man waiting in a line for some soup. He has not eaten in a while so this soup is very important to him considering this is the only thing he might eat all day. As its poured into his cup, he quickly smells it as if this is the best food he has ever smelled and then decides

1. to delicately place it down on his tray

2. or continues to smell it and quickly realizes how bad it actually is and quickly turns to a look of disgust.

Let me know what you think of these options.

Hey everyone! I had a great first class, and I've been having a lot of fun working on the first assignment. I have a pretty polished pass ready, and any notes or suggestions you guys have would be great.

Unfortunately, I had an emergency happen and won't be able to make it to the second week of class. I'll still be working on assignments, and I'll see you all on week 3. Thank you!

Welcome to Fall 2015 session!

Hi Class, I'm looking forward to meeting you all tonight. Don't forget to have your demo reels ready if you're new to my class!

This is a private blog I created where you can share your work with me and your classmates in between classes.  I encourage you to leave feedback for each other.  I will add comments as my schedule allows. 

Here is a compilation of my very first animation exercises at Pixar, back when I started in 2000.  Yikes!
