Since we are very limited on time during the actual seminar, we will review all scenes by our animators and give detailed notes and critiques on Thursday.
We'll be starting the seminar at 4:00 PM sharp Arizona time. Please be sure to keep your questions in reference to Animation Technique only.
Once again, you may begin submitting your questions into this thread. In the meantime and Don will answer them in the order they come into the forum.
Don't forget to keep refreshing your Browser to see the current questions and answers.
Please keep all questions in reference to animation technique only.
Hey Don, I worked on the wave. Questions;
1. Does the wave work?
2. I have been trying to figure out what to do after her wave. Maybe blink a few times, or rock back and forth on toes in a shy way? Or squirm uncomfortably because she's in front of the audience?
Yes, the wave works! I suggest that you do not use any held drawings in your scene. The entire scene can be animated on 2's. The appeal of the rabbit will be in her facial expressions. You're on the right track; keep going.

One suggestion: After Sasha comes to a stop and is looking around, you may want to add an anticipation on her before she resumes walking. In other words, she gets ready for the walk (anticipates) before she starts walking.
Since Sunday I worked just for fun on a dance sequence. I've got film material that I studied and observed the movements, and then I tried to animate it (it's all done straight ahead, the next dance I animate will be a combination of pose to pose and straight ahead I think).
It would be nice if you could have a look at the results (the last one is not finished yet)
And all clips together (but it's very small, I don't know why)
How about after she waves, what do you think the action should be to end the scene?

Just curious about your thoughts. Thanks!

I can make only one suggestion: You should employ a little more overlap in the heads of the characters. Working straight ahead seems to be a good method for you.
I wanted to ask you about how to go about constructing a scene like this:
Basically the scene is a head on view of the character walking towards the camera. As the character is walking, the camera is trucking out, following the character. How do you get the characters feet to register with a background that moving away from the camera?
