Blocking Revision- Rami

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a good week.

I have two versions of this shot, I cant really decide on which one to go with, so any opinions will help. I'm leaning towards the first one.

Also there was one note I got from a couple of people at CTN that said the spinning the drumsticks felt like he was more confident than agitated. I was wondering if you all thought the same thing. I changed the instrument to a guitar now and had him interact with it differently, but I was curious what your thoughts on that was too.

All other notes are welcome too! Thanks in advance!

Bruna - new idea

Hello guys,

I had a few ideas while I was at CTN, and i decided to try a silent acting shot/action.

a dad and a baby. there is someone chasing them (we don't see them). they have nowhere else to run, it is a dead end.   the dad has to choose between giving up or trying to save his baby by.

gonna start blocking out something for next class if that is ok...

That's a Lie

Hi Everyone,

Here is my dialog animation, I fixed the notes given in class. Anything else I can add/change/fix ?


Sunday, November 15, 2015

Added a few things!

Hey everyone,

I wasn't very happy with the way the hand rested too long in the clothes and decided to add some accentuation trying to amp up how she feels, i feel the transition now works better but wanted to get your thoughts before going much further,

Still have to go thru my lypsinc notes.

Thanks for any feedback!

Dialog Samples-help me pick :)

Hey Guys,

Here are some dialog samples I found. My favorite ones are, 3, 6, 1, 8. I wonder which one you will pick.


Bruna - Polishing


Polished all the notes from last class.

any other comments?

thanks in advance!

Rami - More polish

Hey everyone, here's some more polish work from my shot after the notes from last week. As well as adding stuff from the polish lecture.

Thanks in advance for any notes!


New Pantomime Idea...

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to propose a new pantomime idea.

It's an idea of an older cowboy that is ready to mount his horse and ride home for the night. Suddenly he gets hit with a sleeping dart in the arm or the neck and as he checks around to see where it came from he falls asleep off his horse.

I like it because I would like to show something physical with acting and a character reacting under a condition such as a sleeping dart.

Let me know what you think and if you don't I will continue to work on another idea.

Thanks so much!,


Hi Everyone,

This is a dialog shot that I worked on with victor last semester that I would like to finish up.

The scenario is a lonely man that visits this bar quite often. He's kicked back a drink and now hes describing the holidays to the bar tender.

The mouth is just up and down right now so my next task is to really dial into those mouth expressions and mouth shapes of the dialog.

 Let me know your thoughts and feedback.


Sour Change

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to post my latest revisions for your feedback and notes.

I feel like its almost there but I need to finish separating the parts of the swallow and giving the smile a clear beat of its own.

Thoughts, Notes, and Draw overs are welcome!

Cody - Pantomime Blocking+

Hey everyone!

I've been working more on my shot this week, trimming the beginning and end, fixing some staging problems, and trying to convey how he feels after the initial reaction of surprise. There are a couple things I'm not sure about.

Now that I look at the playblast, the timing seems a little slow to me. Maybe it's just because I haven't polished up the physical stuff, or because he's an old man. Maybe I've just been looking at it too long. What do you guys think about the timing?

I'm also not sure about some of the phrases. I'm trying to set it up like Victor said last week, where we see his initial surprise, see him recalling memories, and then see how he feels about those memories. Is it getting across, or should I push it a little further? Any pose, timing, or acting notes would be really helpful. Thanks guys!

Bruna - Polishing

Hello guys,

so this is the point where 1- I cannot see the mistakes anymore and 2- I don't know what else I can do.

Victor, heeelp.   Lol

feedback is very much appreciated. =)

Couples shot, polish - Rami

Hey everyone! Here some more polish work on my couples shot for some feedback.

Thanks in advance!


Sunday, November 8, 2015


Hi guys,

I applied the notes given in class, it would be great if you could check and give me some new notes.

Does he look like he's looking at his hand instead of thinking at frame 210?

Cody - New Pantomime Blocking

Hey Victor! I've started to put in some blocking for my new shot, as well as trying out some new staging. I'm hoping to include the confusion at first that you were talking about, where he doesn't really remember what record it is until it starts playing. Do you think this is a good way to show that?

Also, do you think there's too much business for a subtle shot?

As always, thank you for the advice! Looking forward to your feedback.

Sour Candy Shot...

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded my latest Sour Candy shot for your review...

Draw overs and notes welcome!


P.S.: Let me know if the sound doesn't work or if the playback skips.

Cody - Cowboy Shot

Hey Victor! Here's the latest polish of the cowboy shot:

Thanks for all the draw-overs! They're really helping.

Sunday, November 1, 2015


Hey everyone,

Happy Halloween! Here is a link for my ip version of the dialog animation.

I'd appreciate if you guys could check and let me know if there is any part where it is unappealing or out of character or pushed too much, or maybe a part that needs to be pushed more.

I need to work lot more on it, especially on the last 100 frames. It would be great if I could get some feedback to know if I am going on the right direction. Any feedback/sketches will be appreciated, feel free to state the obvious mistakes too, I might have missed it or haven't worked on it yet but either way it will help.


Rami - notes from class

Hey everyone, here's a update on my shot after the notes from class.

I was curious if her head rotate screen right, when she says "nothings wrong", feels like too much is going on at that moment; or if it feels fine. It's just what I kept acting out when my head settled from the weight shift as well as trying to accent the dialogue just a bit.

Thanks in advance, see you all Wednesday!

I know its tomorrow, but, happy early birthday Victor!
