WEEK 7: Character Acting 1: Weight

Back to Acting for Animators, we welcome once again our guest instructor, Second City veteran, Ed Sahely.
 116-lb  Marilou Dozois-Prevost makes 228 lbs look like a q-tip.
Please be in the Octagon at 12, ready for action.

The secondary topic for today is weight.

We'll study some key forces at work in creating the illusion of weight in our animation.

Pushing, pulling, moving weight, and even just balancing our own body weight takes effort.  Emphasizing that effort is key to making our animation believable.

Making our characters appear to be bound by Earth's gravity makes them look like they share the same real-world environment as we do.
