Animation Planning

A classmate posted this video on our masters facebook group. It shows the process of creating animation from animatic to final animation.

I could really learn from this. I do the sketches and general planning on paper but I seldom put them into an animatic, which is something I really should be doing. Instead I've been straight ahead posing using video reference and keying in the first poses that way. I've already adjusted the way I work (I used to lip sync before putting in the poses, which started to cause problems when animating bigger scenes. I now block key poses and some inbetweens before lip syncing) but it still needs to change for more efficiency in planning.

Found the final render too :)
