This was the first animation test for this project. I stood in the mirror and poked and prodded at myself, describing my body into the microphone.
It wasn’t a particularly comfortable experience, but it wasn’t that bad either - if anything, listening to it, it feels a bit forced. This is something I’ve come up with several times when just talking to myself into the audio recorder - it feels quite unnatural doing it, like I’m putting on a voice or I’m acting somehow. Some of the content is really interesting, and sometimes quite hard to listen back to, but it doesn’t make for good storytelling. I’m hoping that maybe being in conversation with other people will help that along.
