The class has been very good so far. It's been good to get that fire under my ass to actually perform and create new pieces.
For the first week, we were told to bring a bunch of ideas for the tutor to pick from. I had a lot, but this is the one that won out:
It was honestly, not my first choice, in fact, it was that one that you throw in the list and like, but don't have your heart set on doing (which is generally the one that gets picked, at least in my experiences). But, it is from one of my favorite movies, and I did put it on my list of possibilities because it had potential to be a nice sweet/serious shot and a hint of subtext to try and sell.
So, with this clip chosen and got a fair response from my tutor, I moved ahead with blocking, and this was the result.
That in mind, I set myself to completely destroy my idea and start anew. I do this all the time and definitely had my usual freak out mode where I question everything about my shot. Mostly because I knew the notes he made were basically meaning I had to start from scratch again, so I start to question all of my decisions and ideas about the shot. I got far to many advices, but enough to reflect on my feelings of them and realize where I needed to take the shot.
From the crit, I got a few notes, mostly changing the guy's poses at the end so it's more appealing and focused on her. My blocking had him too engaged, but now he was too disengaged. Good old goldie locks up in this shot...
I'm currently working on those notes, but thought I'd get out a first post on this shot and give AnimSquad some shout outs.
