In the span of 2 months freelancing on this animated short film, I have learned so much from the very talented and experienced team. Though fresh out of the Academy, I'm glad and honoured to have joined the production for this pilot episode.
It's so fun and fulfilling to see work come together and the progress to get to final anim. This is my entry for 11 Secs Club (March 2023) and I spent a few hours on it for about 2 weeks. To be honest, I'm still weak on dialogue and I have a long way to go! Hope to revisit this piece soon.
I've put together two of my favourite shots that I've worked on in ALA. Tried my best to channel the attitude of the main character, a high lifted chin, narrowed determined eyes and stronger arm whips. I had pushed for the idea of grabbing his face and fortunately, our Animation Director liked it.
I was very fortunate to have provided my amateur acting services for ALA's Unreal Engine 5 Short Film 'Robo-Ramen'. This was the team's first time working in UE and with mocap. So I was incredibly lucky to be able to perform my take on the two main characters and see that input in our final product. I mainly took inspiration from real life (my dad) for the Chef and channelled some 'nervous intern' energy for the robot.
