Greetings everyone ,
We are back after a 3 week break with another session , sorry about the delay.
This sessions theme is [b]Action Cut
[/b][color=White]Here is what you have to do:
have your character be idle at first
Character hears\feels\senses something and starts turning to react to it
Reaction occurs , and this is where we have the camera cut
Reaction carries over across the cut and we show what the character is reacting to.
The trick here is to have the cut feel invisible to the viever , if you cut nicely and carry the action across seamlessly the cut will be unnoticable.
I have to stress out the carry the action part , the action needs to be continuous between the 3th and 4th shot.
You can go creative on what the character reacts to , have fun
here are the rules other than the ones listed above:
[color=DarkOrange]> You have 100 frames to tell the story , cut should occur no longer than frame 60. If you feel like telling the story in a shorter time thats fine but no longer than 100 frames.
> No sound
> No rendering , playblasts are fine , you can render after the session , or if you finish early and have spare time.
> Using premade characters , rigs and free rigs available on the net is perfectly fine. Please do not spend time modelling\rigging characters as you dont have enough time to do that and finish the session.
> No Dynamics
> Using multiple characters is allowed
> You need to post WIP’s as you go along , posting a finished anim near the end of session will result in your thread getting deleted. The reason for this is to encourage everyone to show wips and critique each others work.
This is it folks , I hope everyone has much fun coming up with new ideas.
As always please ask any questions you have about this session in this thread and start a new thread when you join , ie:
