New Animation Plan

New outline / storyboard

To keep things interesting for me I’ve decided to use a pre-exsisting rig for my animation and use a dance sequence from the movie Napoleon Dynamite as a reference.

The Merry rig is a very high quality rig with many facial controls and freedom of movement.

Jared Hess (Director). (2004). Napoleon dynamite [Film]. MTV Films.
Chickenwing87. (2011, May 7). Napoleon Dynamite Dance. YouTube.
(I also use this video as reference when the original footage cuts to other actors)

The plan is to animate as much of the dance as possible but I am aming for 15 – 30 seconds.
