I'm redoing the animation in my first lip sync task. The feedback was basically that the poses were too big and there was no build up in the action. I've taken and studied the reference and blocked out a different animation.
At the moment, only the body movement is stepped and the lip sync and facial expressions remain the same and in splines. It's going to look a little weird but I don't want to complicate redoing the scene so have left the lip sync and facial expression for adjusting later.
