Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Final blocking, part of Character Animation: Dialogue.
…Now I have the first part of the scene blocked out.…So we've got the character's body moving to the dialogue.…And this what we have.…>> Oh, I don't know.…>> So now the next half of this piece of dialogue is a change of emotion.…A change of expression.…So in this case, she's saying.…>> Will there be pie?…>> So she's moving up.…So at the beginning of this little piece of dialogue here she kind of moves down.…So basically she's moving down when she gets sad.…
So in this second half here we're going to have her move up.…So again, we're just working with the body.…So a lot of this information's going to be communicated through the body motion and…the body position.…So let's go ahead and just work on this more time.…Now when she has a change of expression she also needs to…have a new font come into our head.…So she's saying, oh, I don't know.…And then she things, will there be pie?…And then she says it.…So she gets this kind of an idea in her head.…
So we need to communicate that somewhere along in this space between…
