This one is a very spontaneous take on "The Batman" teaser with Robert Pattinson's voice (and a little spin on it). I spent roughly 3-4 days: from having no idea at all to planning, finding models and rig, prop modeling, figuring out the composition and the punch line, etc. I shot a bunch of video references, but there were also lots of prompt decisions. Some didn't make the cut and most were improvised (especially the ending). I was going to animate Batman himself at first, but I thought this would be a fun twist (and mainly because I couldn't find any batman rig and didn't have time to modify one).

It was really nice and refreshing to do shorter exercises as I got to focus my attention more on specific areas; the facial animation in this case. Lip sync hasn't been my greatest strength and so I'm working on that!
