Performance Animation

This project was about taking an audio clip and turning it in my own animation conveying the phonemes of speech being used and the emotions within the dialogue. Below is my character sheet and the video itself.

Original Show: Scorpion

Name: Sanya
Emotions: Sadness, Longing
Age: 25
Weaknesses: low self-esteem, has trouble sharing feelings
Need: She needs to gain a better opinion of herself if she wants others to reciprocate her feelings
Desire: She wants to win the love of a long-time friend
Values: companionship, reliability

Animation: 2D digital
Dialogue: “Think about … how important you are to me.”

Story: Sanya’s childhood friend, whom she has fallen in love with, has been thinking about moving out of state. In a last effort to convince him to stay, Sanya visits his apartment one night and tells him how she feels.

  • The looking down shot should have a pause.
  • The phonemes should match up more with the audio (especially in terms of annunciation)
  • “O” needs to hold out longer
  • stronger “t”
  • “ah” needs to be larger
  • more prominent “P”
  • “you are” was lost
  • towards the end some phonemes are missing and the words get lost a little
