Some fun insight to Bryce's workflow on Peabody & Sherman. Check out the use of video reference. It's great to see so that you can look at the bits that he uses and the areas where he pushes the performance. Check out his blog brycemcgovern.blogspot.com for posts that have more insight to his process on these shots. Fun stuff!
Saw a great post over at Tim Rudder's blog where he chats about he lecture he recently attended about break up your motion so animation doesn't feel as pose to pose. He even post some great examples from Mulan.
**Looks like some of the recordings are available and I added below..I'll keep u updated**
Some really nice free recordings of live webinars that CGTarian hosted. You have three posted from Day 1. A couple of Workflow Breakdowns and one about Demo Reels. Some really good nuggets coming out of these.
Have a look at a shot that Geoff Hemphill did on Rango. His reference is really great. If you watch it closely to you can see the difference in his ref and his final performance. It's not completely 1 to 1 and shows how you can take the bits from reference and then keep pushing the performance beyond it.
Been a while for an interview and this one has been sitting in the queue for bit now. Sorry for the delay, but I am happy to share the latest interview I have up.
This is my full interview with Darryl Purdy and David Hubert, two veterans of the animation industry chat about the challenges in both film and games. Darryl then does a quick breakdown of how he approaches some of his creature animation. Sorry about the slight echo early on.
Thanks again to Darryl Purdy and David Hubert for a great interview and giving up their time to give back to the community!
Sometimes it is hard to put all of what you accomplished on a game into words or thoughts never-mind trying to encompass it on a reel. I think David A. Gibson did a great job here in his reel for EVOVLE, showing the process and how much someone can work on and influence a game. You don't see this as much when it comes to animating on a film.
Trent Corey also showed off some process work with the same character. This was a character test or study and you can really see some of the influences from that test in the shot above. That's why I think it is super important to be able to explore characters before going into production, unfortunately not always the case.
