Rb Reber Layout (Previs/Cinematics) Reel 2018

Compiled two of my latest personal layout/previs/cinematic sequences. Comments and critiques are welcome. Any feedback would be very much appreciated. Thank you and hope you guys enjoy it! :)

I've always wanted to dive deeper and get more into doing layout/previs, especially with me being so passionate about storytelling and cinematography. This was really fun to do, and I learned a lot from research and actually doing the work.

Another one of my animations I never really got to share here on my blog.

Tried out this free tiger rig and practiced on my quadruped animation more. Also wanted to animate the face of the tiger and do a bit more facial acting with it since it had a nice setup. Thought of what better audio to use than the voice of one of the most popular tiger characters ever, Shere Khan from The Jungle Book.

I never really got to share this animation here on my blog, so I'm doing so now.

I wanted to test out this free Judy Hopps rig from Zootopia. Creating interesting mouth shapes was a challenge but it was fun overall.
