In the senior class, we're so fortunate to be working with Rex Grignon, a world class senior animator from PDI/DreamWorks. He has been nothing less than amazing and incredibly helpful. Over the past few weeks he's given us a challenging test to take on. In brief, we have a boss-type character who responds to some news on the phone. At the same time, he reveals part of his character through idle action with an object. The whole test must be 5 to 6 seconds in length. Here's my take on it. I can see that a lot of my motions are still looking mechanical rather than natural, so I need to figure out what's going on there. After that, my next step is to start polishing and getting in the subtleties and details. As usual I'm open to any advice or comments to help me improve this.
