Here are some clips that I thought were good examples of pantomime acting. Not only is the acting and staging very clear, but you get a good feel for the personality of the character and the stakes of the situation.
Here's a WIP by Tony Chau (I don't think he ever finished it) but I love how clear the intent of the character and the stakes of the situation are. Password: 4animc
Here's a more serious piece of acting by Lesley Manville. Notice the clear changes in her attitude and expression, and how she interacts with the phone.
And finally, here's a clip of Reese Witherspoon in Election. She plays a very uptight character and notice how she reacts when things don't go her way. Password: 4animc
See you all Wednesday!
