The process is coming together pretty good. Started off by setting up out various camera angles with set-scale styrofoam mannequins. Here's some. We're going to shoot/cut this scene in a pretty traditional way; over the shoulder shots, simulated multi-camera setups, 'coverage', etc. We jut picked some angles that would get us what we need, and we'll cut between them.
Spent a couple hours last night filming animation/camera movement reference footage - have the first half of this scene (about a minute) in the bag. There was two camera for each shot - handheld moving camera, and a camera on a tripod. The tripod-cam is for the animation reference.
The next step is to cut the footage into a scene, and export the corresponding animation reference clips into single clips.
Then we'll be animatin'.
