Acting Reference #21

Here's a cool clip from the movie Bronson. I love how you can feel all the anger & emotion that Bronson is holding in after he hears his girlfriend is marrying someone else. The little mouth movement he makes and eye darts all help sell this. The multiple little blinks he has when he says "congratulations" help convey all he's trying to hold back, really cool stuff. This is a really great independent movie that came out in 2008 which features an amazing performance by Tom Hardy who plays the main character I definitely recommend checking it out.

Another great clip from Leo (wow this is like my 3rd Leo clip, guess I'm a fan haha) this one from The Departed. Really like all the gestures & facial expressions going on here. Especially the little hand twirl he does when he says "if only f*@king here" It's a really original & expressive gesture, which makes it much more interesting.

Dino Walk Cycle

Found this free rig on the internet, always wanted to do a Dinosaur animation, so I made this quick walk cycle.
