We held a "acting workshop" the other day, with the actor Takuji Nakamura as our teacher!!
Nakamura Takuji was the motion capture actor for the character Kunst in "After School Midnighters".
In the world of animation, an animator plays the role of the actor, so we were taught the concepts real life actors use when playing their roles.
We tried one-minute skits, then broke up into pairs, using one script in different settings (two people fighting, one leaving soon etc.) with practical pointers on how to express emotions, character, and situations.
Maybe the level of our animators at Mont Blanc will go up dramatically as well.
Anyway! We would love to do it again! ! !
It seems to have been a very significant workshop!
