Acting Reference #33 - Tribute to LOST

Yesterday was the series finale of Lost, so I decided to post some clips in honor of my favorite show ending. If you haven't experienced Lost, I definitely recommend it, has some of the best acting on television. There are so many great moments from this show, so I decided to show 2 clips this time haha & I'm sure they'll be more to come in the future. Enjoy!

P.S. Don't worry...there's no spoilers in these clips

Toy Story Mania Update

So this is what I've been working on for the past couple of months. Working with Disney & Pixar on an update to the Toy Story Mania ride in DisneyWorld & DisneyLand for the release of Toy Story 3. I did animation on the original ride as well, which came out in 2008, so it was a lot of fun getting to work on this again. Click the image to check out an article about the ride.

Acting Reference #32

I'm a really big Phillip Seymour Hoffman fan & here's a great clip of him in Capote. This is great reference for hand poses (the one holding the cigarette) and creating a loose, natural feel in hand movement.

Acting Reference #31

Here's a great little clip of Mark Ruffalo in Zodiac. I love how the shot only focuses on his character, so we really get to see his different reactions to the children he's taking a statement from. There's also a lot of nice little head gestures going on here. I especially like the sublte moment of surprise he has once he hears that girl saw the mans face. He's really a great underrated actor.

Acting Reference #30

After being thoroughly impressed with her performance in The Lovely Bones, I've been seeking out other movies with Saoirse Ronan. Here's a great clip of her in Death Defying Acts. It's just amazing how in this short clip she's able to go through multiple emotions. It's also has a nice example of an unrelated secondary action, her juggling.

"All we've got is what we can touch & see" She says this as though she's hoping & expecting her Mom will disagree with her, but she doesn't. After hearing this she has this wonderful moment of realization, that shes lost her innocence. You really feel that shes trying to hold her feelings back, keep from crying, but she can't. There's just so much going on, with so little being said. She's such a great little actress!!
