Final Lip Sync and Facial Acting

After adding some movement in the neck, head, shoulders, eyes and arms the overall animation appears to look a lot more natural. I also added a gentle camera zoom along with substituting the audio with the more cinematic sounding segment to make the character seem all the more threatening. Overall I am very pleased with the result.

Choosing Audio

The audio I decided to use was an extract from one of my favourite games of all time, Portal 2. The reason why I chose audio from this game is because all of the characters are mouthless robots, so there’s no possible way for me to copy their mouth movements.

I chose this scene to animate because of the heightened emotion of the characters and the intense facial expressions that could be made if only the characters were human.
