Animate a shot (about 120 Frames) showing how somebody jumps over an obstacle. My guy nearly slips but manages to land safely in the end.
Shoot video reference of myself doing the jump action. Analyze and plan the shot through rough sketches to get a first impression of the sequence. The figure is Keyframe animated with 3ds Max.
Get into the core concepts of body mechanics by showing advanced movement with an almost full body rig. Demonstrate the feeling of weight and make the character alive.
