going beyond the exercise

Tonight we're going to look at our blocking with a critical eye. There have a been a ton of great Academy grads over the years. This one caught my eye, as he does a great job at setting up the stage for an entertaining animation. The weight isn't even perfect on it, but it's close enough, and by having the motion and dynamic posing guide the eyethe entertainment value allows the viewer to focus on the important areas of the shot. Details like the ham flying out of the top of the fridge add a lot of texture to the PHRASING of the piece. Additionally, the general beats of the forward back motion are funny in and of themselves.
