11 Second Club – Live Action Video Tests

On Friday, I did some live action video tests for my 11 second club animation, to capture the facial expression and movement that can be adapted to the characters animation. I’ve put together a video, so you guys can have a look. Thanks to my colleague, Ben Wardle ,for an Oscar winning performance!

Using a voice clip of Samuel L. Jackson from Die Hard 3 and the amazing eleven rig, I’ve had to lip sync the rig to the animation. So I decided to record myself for animation reference for the mouth movement.

With this reference and attach a face cam to the rig, this made the process nice and easy to animate, even with the animation layers. Here is the end result of my lip sync animation.
