New to animation. Still want to participate in October Competition.

Hi friends,
I wanna ask can I use movie clip as reference? Obvious it would not be a complete copy but a reference.

I do not have much experience in character animation. I want to participate with a serious effort to get critics to improve my work. Want to participate because I often find it difficult for myself to work under deadlines.

Please give me your valuable suggestion and tips which I should keep in mind while animating and participating.
Thanks in advance

I think the best reference would be acting it out and filming it.All the best.:-)

Productive!

Re: New to animation. Still want to participate in October Competition.

You can use whatever you want as reference, as much or as little. Whatever helps you out. As the folks have said above, though, be careful leaning too heavily on outside sources for acting choices, because it can hinder you later. But at first, where else would you get your acting cues except outside sources? Most of us are not amazing actors from day 1, and have to start somewhere. smile

Good luck.
