Stop Motion Diary 16/05/2014
Partial Progress update for my dialogue and walk segment, 4 seconds out of 10. Audio from Welcome to Night Vale.
Had a couple false starts on this one. It’s pretty hard keeping track of all the moving parts and making them move smoothly through poses. As-is you can see I was still having trouble when I started this take, as the hips and torso jitter quite a bit when they first come into frame.
I’m debating wether the timing of the character’s lip-sync and actions feel just a fraction of a second ahead of the dialogue. Which is odd because i’m following my x-sheet and dialogue test to the letter. Either way I think I’ll stick it out to see what happens. (and if necessary bump-back the audio a smidge in post)
Edit: Chuck says progress is good so far, lots of energy, very expressive, good projection of character. He did warn me the hips were a little stiff, and that I should try and get a little more weight/shift sway in their arcs. Though he admits that with this armature it can be a little difficult.
