An animation exercise for my ANIM 383 [3D Character Animation: Performance Through Dialogue] class at SCAD. This was my very first attempt at animating a lip-sync shot. I learned a lot along the way, but there is still room for improvement! It's so cool to finally see my character talks on the screen instead of just moving!
I have always been intrigued to show the performance of a character that is telling a lie. I tried to keep in mind the subtext and show her nervous improvisation through her facial acting. I also made it a zoom interview because it's a platform we all suddenly relate and turn to during the pandemic.
