A not so intelectual update

Lip Sync challenge number 1.
Select a piece of audio where the speaker doesn't speak regularly and with a decent amount of high and low pitches and animate just the mouth.

A Lip-sync oddity from Willva on Vimeo.

It is an interesting challenge because this particular speakers words are all mashed together, it was a tedious but fun process of figuring out shapes and sounds. Some of the animation is on ones.

Currently I'm working on 2 sets of storyboards for 2 films. The first is Shock, a live action film about a teen with the power to absorb.. Well power =)
And the other for an animated film, Full Rotation. Both films have interesting and fun cinematography challenges. I'll post more as I can =).

I've also been working on a series bible for a short web series that i may or may not pursue, but thus far it’s been a fun and enjoyable process.

It is about Viko, an obnoxious Viking adventurer in search of selfish glory and the title Hero, but he doesn't yet understand what it truly means to be a hero. Viko travels to different kingdoms under the violent wrath of Loki, the god of mischief. Viko has to solve problems and do battle to defeat Loki and save the kingdoms from evil. This would be a fun project to pursue because although the story seems childish, it will be run on violence and grown up themes.

and yes =), rant complete

  1. Oh Man! What is that Audio from? Is it Bill Cosby or some no nonsense MoFo?!
    That made me laugh.

    BTW Great work with the Lip Sync. Very fluid.

    Just to be annoying, I wouldn't have used that mouth shape for the letter O.
