Today we did the reference recordings of us mimicking how we would see the animation play out. My vision for how I wanted my animation to play out was based on how old people walk and interact with things. I was scared of over-complicating things when I explained how I wanted it to play out, because I would need to do the following things: 3D model a walking cane, rig it so I could animate it with parent control, Old man walk cycles.
I took it as a challenge and recorded the references:
All though I was not entirely happy with how I hit the table, I did some additional recordings:
I also wanted the last hit to give the old man a crick in the spine so I did one more recording:
Now that I have all the references done, I will start making the first blocking stage of the animation.
