View Full Version : Woody Allen Clip (Acting exercise)

04-04-2007, 01:06 AM
Hey everyone. Here's a first pass at a some Woody Allen dialogue from one of his older movies, Love & Death. I'm not sure if it works as a whole, or if I should just focus on a section. It's starting to feel a bit overlong and I think the quality fluctuates as a result. Anyway, all advice is appreciated, thanks for checking it out!

Hi Kevin. I took a quick look at your animation and my first impression is it's too long. I'd focus on just a portion of it and work on polishing it further. I also think the facial expressions and lipsynch is pretty decent already but the body animation is kinda weak in most parts - particularly the torso and shoulder areas. You've got some nice hand gestures there although I'd balance it out - right now the left hand seems to get all the action if you know what I mean. I'd try pushing the poses a bit more to give it more expression and variety. Body movements is usually the part I tend to notice first.
Not much help there but I hope it's something you can use.

Hey thanks mahir. I agree about the length; I'll pick a section this weekend and polish that.
