Goals for the week: 1. Understand the steps that go into animating dialogue. 2. Practice shooting your own reference and using it in your animation. 3. Practice applying acting to a character to communicate ideas.
When you are ready to animate an original piece of dialogue (after the "I have nothing to say" test), look under the "Animation Resources" page for examples of dialogue that that can be used for your next test. The second test can be animated in any program/medium you want.
