Thanks for the suggestion Joeranimo, but I’m probably going with this new one which might not fit with that.
New rough blocking
Pardon the exposition in my WIPs, I tend to document a lot of things that go through my mind. If it’s trivial stuff that I could be wasting my time thinking about let me know. What else am I suppose to think about?
A quick summary of what the B1, B2, and B3 mean for those who don’t know. They indicate my primary, secondary and tertiary breakdowns. They help define the motion between key poses. From what I gather from VTS 19 from Keith Lango, primary breakdowns define key to key. Secondary define between breakdown and key. I made up the tertiary (I don’t recall Keith talking about it), those define breakdown to breakdown. I haven’t used that third one effectively and that often I think, but it’s there just in case it pops up.
My previous one I had 15 frames labeled ‘key’, this time I have 6.
Starting the scene with him just putting down the chips and lifting his hand off of it. Looking really focused on the chips as if willing the stack to win.
The anticipation of watching the roulette spin should make him feel as if it’s the longest moment of his life. After all if he doesn’t win there’s a significant loss. It’s just one of those moments you hold your breath.
He loses! Looking really close to the roulette wheel double checking, triple checking. His right hand clutches his chest as if he’s keeping his heart from bursting out. He stays fixated on the wheel until he notices his chips being taken away.
He tries to stand back up but just collapses with his arms still holding on to the roulette table. Last thing he does is probably cry.
Interesting note is that the two times he is standing up in anticipation. The first is for the ball to land and the second is before he falls.
Geesh, I sound like a scriptwriter or something.
Please, crit away.
