View Full Version : Which character to do? "Gladiator" Lipsync Assignment

11 November 2007, 07:35 AM
Okay guys. I need your opinion!!!

I'm up between two character for a lip sync assignment. The audio is from Gladiator.

This is with the Tiny Rig:

This is with the Ollie Rig:

I was leaning more towards doing the Tiny character, but my teacher says otherwise. His statement is, the voice isn't juxtaposed enough to fit tiny. If tiny was to say a line, it should be really animal like and crude or very girly and kiddish. He thinks the ollie would fit better because he is a scrawny guy.

I thought tiny would be better because he's a creature, it makes it more interesting, and he is more appealing and I thought it matched the line well. I also thought that ollie is way over used in demoreels.

What is your guys's opinion?

I would probably use the Ollie rig, becuase you can probably get more facial expressions out of him

I vote for Ollie too. I agree that the voice seems more like it would be coming from that charcter. People pick up on that and its like when people have a man voice coming from a boy rig - it can work but a lot of people may be pulled out of the moment if they think about the voice not matching the person it is coming from. I would not worry about if the rig is used a lot. If the animation is good I don't think it matters - but opinions sure seem to differ alot from company to company.
