Well, rather embarrassing as it may be, here are my video references for my 11 Second Club lip sync animation! Please forgive my stern frowny face (all part of the act, I can assure you- well ok, maybe a little bit due to deadline stress!) With deadlines approaching faster than any of us would like, I have made the choice to create a digital 'pure lip sync' test first, using still photos of the replaced mouths, whereby I can use Adobe After Effects to sync the syllable movements with the sound. This is purely to make sure I do have a test in video form, if things should go wrong later in the week.
Of course, with this method there is no opportunity to animate the eyes/eyebrows of the puppet. I still intend to create a proper animation, using a dope sheet, to include these further facial movements. For this, I will naturally be studying my own expressions in the following videos (especially the final test in the second video).
