The edit is a compilation of the best shots I've solo animated for the TV show "A Fazenda 7"
After working on the main vignette, I started animating for the daily show.
Looking back, I feel that I could have delivered better animation, however TV's projects usually have a tight timeline, not allowing the animator to get an extra polish pass on the shots.
This exercise made my work flow to adjust the time I had in my hands, with the animation quality I could reach to get the ideas working well.
So, I spent more time planning the shots, posing and timing, and less time in the transitions.
When I was more used to the rigs, I started animating the shots with the straight ahead approach, then polishing the main poses and the timing after.
Sometimes, I had no idea how the transitions would work and most of the time I had good 'surprises' with the overall performance of the characters!
In the process I understood that in pro of the idea we always can adjust the quality over time, and also I worked on letting go of my shots.
I had lots of fun animating and working on this project!
