Two Character Interaction Shots Notes

I found some nice notes that I made when we had Ethan Hurd as an interaction animation teacher. Maybe it will also help you to use them.

One character is always dominating.
Each character must give the other room to act.
It looks good when characters touch.
The characters are looking at each other.
Each character is engaged all the time.

Things you need to know:
  • the location
  • time of day, year?
  • what are they doing?
  • who are they?
  • what do they want, long term, short term?
  • do they like each other?

Project Quadruped

With Adreea Serban Chira as my CG partner in crime, we created this lovely creature called Fluffakka (fluffy alpacca). We designed it together, Andreea modeled it, rigged it using autorig, I animated it, then she rendered it and comped it. It was a fun project. Animation was challenging, since we had only 2 weeks to do it, but I strived for perfection and learned a lot. Here it goes.
