AniMotion NM Meeting - Physical Expression for Animators
Date and Time:
April 14, 2009 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm
131 Pine St NE
Albuquerque, NM 87131
Join actor Barbara Geary as we explore the process of creating a
character using the body as the fundamental vehicle for expression.
Explore principals of movement, gestural language and a range of
physical, emotional and comedic experience. Techniques learned can be
applied to elements such as visual and auditory, composition, building
the rhythm and arc of a scene, character design, character establishment
and interaction, art direction, and cinematography.
The session culminates in the development of a personal "cartoon"
character that can be both animated and performed live. If you have a
character you've been working on, or want to work on, please bring
sketches or other images to work from and share with the group.
bonus: It's also a lot of fun!
