I entered the 11 secoond club this month and my shot bombed, I love animation and they say true love never ran smooth.
My biggest mistake was I played it too safe. I floated between poses and didn't hit them hard enough.
I need to hit my poses way harder than I think and I should hold my poses longer than I expect. It should improve my work.
I didn't emphasise my mouth shapes on F'W'O and G's in my lip sync.
I was recomended to use a webcam to record myself speaking the lines at a normal pace, then go back through and frame-by-frame through it to see how your mouth changes as it forms the words.
Hopefully with this advice, i'll improve.
The lipsync is a bit stiky on this. So please go to the link, to get proper playback.
