An Interview with Cyclops Bunny

I learned a LOT about planning dialogue and being really organized with the exposure sheets, because it was a small nightmare, at least the way I went about it.
It's weird how important the "acting" in the voice is...the intonations, the actual quality of the voice. Even though I used my own voice, I thought about it objectively and had to be clear about the character. I dreaded the process before going into it, but I actually really enjoyed animating it, even though from setting up to FinalCut Pro compression took me about 10 hours of my time. After it was all over, I finally sat down and realized that my feet were sore from standing, haha.
