Thanks Carl! I am of course using the ‘Chatter Buster arm rig’ for Schlitzy. I did originally have him spinning on his legs, but changed it to the stool, which is a better use of props and it allowed me to add the interest of the script sticking to his bum. It’s annoying and probably not very professional, but better ideas often occur to me while I’m in the process of animating.
Jim, I think I will have a muffled voice pointing out that the script is stuck to his bum. As to the fall at the end, I might have the camera start to slowly zoom in so by the end of the scene, when he falls over, he will disappear from the frame.
Zaryin, the paper is going to be my biggest headache. It has to be constrained to the stool, his behind, his left hand, then both his hands constrained to the paper, then the paper constrained back to his right hand then to the left!
John, the paper won’t have anything visible written on it, cuz that will give us a clue that he is trying to read it upside down. You are probably right about the section, (or near that area) I can edit out to save some seconds.
Thanks everyone for the comments, it’s much appreciated.
