Danielle speaks for the first time when she gets excited over the prospects of a new job as a part of my Character Animation brief at Uni. This was done at home without a line tester, so I'm pleased that it came out so clearly! It was also the first time using a dope sheet to plan out the dialogue to the body movement and lip syncing--could have been pushed further but I'm fairly happy to keep it as is for now.

This is probably my favourite of the animation exercises. :3

The dialogue is an edited segment from Jessica Hynes as Daisy Steiner in "SPACED", Season One, Episode 3: "Art". Directed by Edgar Wright ©Channel 4 1999-2001.

like i was saying before with the lip sync exercise being the most confusing for alot of people. i think you've really aced this :D

The audio and the mouth movement work very well together and look very natural. The character movement with the audio is really impressive. like matt said; 'the character should look like they belong to the words even without a mouth' i think you have really achieved this.

You say in the description that you could have pushed it further, out of curiosity how much more would you have liked to push it if you had more time?

Thank you! I was very happy with the feedback I got for this, I wasn't expecting it at all!

Hmm, good point. I think at the time I wasn't totally happy with how she was growing and shrinking all the time and the fast audio was difficult to get the mouth moving right to. Of course this is nothing to do with 'pushing it further', so I was probably referring to making it cleaner! I think I would have liked to add stuff like a background and maybe the person she was talking to, but this would start to stray from the purpose of the task, so I think it's alright as is. :)

i really didn't notice the shrinking, it is only slight and because the character is so animated i think it isn't really a problem.

As for everything else; its really just ideas for cleanup and afterwards, like you said; not really part of the brief. Nice to have but dosn't add anything to the animation itself.

Yeah, that's always a good way to avoid noticing growing or shrinking, just move them all over the place lol! :P
Exactly, for this Matthew was very clear about keeping it rough anyway, final touch ups can always be made in the clean-up stages. :)

Thank you! For this animation I had to use a 'dope sheet' or 'exposure sheet' to break down and time the audio which helps considerably for the lip synching! It was all done with paper and pencil and then captured through a video camera and exported as a movie.
