Here’s the reference video I developed in ‘Acting for Animators’ today. This really helped me realise the performance I was trying to make. Valentina really understood the kind of demeanour the character had and used the same posture I was looking to capture. Each key pose of the performance is dynamic and visually interesting.
However, if I were to direct it again I would decide against having the hurried exit at the end and rather stand back in awe of the flash in the box.
