View Full Version : Some simple lip synch movies...
01-09-2003, 06:03 PM
Some of my lip synch animations (originally done as a blendshape test) have been posted on a site...
they're a teaser for something - but I can't say what for yet.
Hope you like them.

Very Aardman ;)
Very nice too. Can't wait to see more. :applause:

Hooh, those are wondeful! Really well done!!! I'd love to see more.
I also agree, they are very Aardman like, which is a huge compliment.
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Those are good. Do you work at Aardman? I think they're in Bristol aren't they? If you don't you totaly ripped them off :D
Same mouth, same animation style, same interview recording style. Very good stuff!

Haha I agree totally!
Very funny and Aardman like! Well done!

Wait a second, hehe he must have definitely been going for the Aardman style because the audio for the first movie is just bits pieced together from the Aardman short!

cool indeed :D
the aardman style, simple but o so sweet!

Blimey - I didn't realise it was so obvious. Either that, or you have a good eye. I do work for Aardman and I did do the Deadline film. But the audio isn't from it. I've done about 40 of these - using old archive radio interviews - sometimes edited (like the erm one) but mostly just lifted out of context.
Thanks for the kind comments.

That's pretty awsome. I used to dream of working for Aardman when I did stop motion. How many computer animators do they have there? Do you think the studio is moving over to computers more than stop motion?

There are 14 of us in the computer department now - 11 being creative types. The department really hasn't been going that long - Aardman were very unsure about doing cg to start with but seem to have come to accept it now. It's by no means taking over though. It's just another way of doing character animation - and providing it's got the charm that people like in the traditional Aardman work it doesn't matter how it was done. We just use whatever's best for the job.
The great part for me is being surrounded by so many clever claymation animators and being able to get tips off them. They also set a pretty high standard for us in the cg dept. to live up to.
