Work in Progress

Here's my work in progress for the 1st assignment. It was supposed to be our final submission this week - but I still feel like I need to polish it more to smooth things out and take out the pops. Waiting for crit - then I'll give it one more good solid pass, and hopefully things are a go. :)

We're moving onto dialogue this week. I need to come up with three dialogue pieces (between 5 and 10 seconds) - then thumbnail out my ideas.

It'll be a lot of work - but I'm so excited - we finally get to use BISHOP! He's not fully rigged (facial) - but it's just exciting to have something a bit more 'human' like. :)

I'll keep a list of movies I'm thinking about in the meantime (I'll keep updating it as I go):

Groundhog Day
Dan in Real Life
Peggy Sue Got Married
Modern Problems
National Lampoon's Vacation
Young Frankenstein

Gearing up for the next project

So we're doing our first dialogue piece for our next project. I'm super excited. We have to pick a few clips of audio (due in 1 1/2 weeks) - so here are the names of some actors who's voices I really like. My mentor suggested picking a movie that I've never seen before (so that I don't have issues with tying the dialogue to the performance of the actor). So I thought I would look for some movies with actors I like. :)

Here's my list so far:

Paul Giamatti
Will Ferrell
Lily Tomlin
John Goodman
Ricky Gervais
Bill Murray
Billy Crystal
Steve Buscemi
Ellen DeGeneres
Tom Hanks
Tim Allen
John Ratzenberger
Holly Hunter
Jason Lee
Samuel L. Jackson
Peter O'Toole
Seth Rogan
Steve Carell
Carol Burnett
Jack Black
Dustin Hoffman

Here's my work in progress on our first assignment for term 3. I have one more week to polish stuff up - still need to work on arcs and phrasing. :)
