For my portfolio class this semester I've decided to start working on a new two person dialogue shot. I set out to find a sound clip that was appealing and featured a kid (as I have never ever animated a child before)
I ended up settling on the following clip from Bridge to Terabithia:
I then spent some time thinking about the back-story for my characters (Which is where the wonderful Rex Grignon and Todd Waring taught me to always start a shot). The little girl, Jenny, is an extremely hyperactive child who no one can keep up with. She has worn out several babysitters with her large imagination and boundless energy. Her new babysitter is Sara. Sara is extremely disinterested in baby sitting and begins the shot texting a boy she is very interested in. As Jenny's explanation gets more big and bizarre Sara is slowly drawn away from texting and ends the shot fully paying attention to Jenny.
I shot some reference, but as it is with any reference worth using it is far too embarrassing to share.
See you all next week! <3 p="">
