Doing Riverdance with a Peg Leg
I love the education opportunities that come with animating an independent film. Will it ever apply anywhere else? Doesn’t matter. I have a scene in Fish Head where there is a line up of toothless fishermen ( and a woman) riverdancing. So, find reference, study the moves. Each body shape has a different application to the dance. The weight. The leg length. Now throw in the fact that 3 of the fisherman have fake wooden legs.
Nothing comes up on you tube of riverdancing with a peg leg. Hmmmm,,,,
Try it. Throw it away. Try it again. Does it bend at all?
Time for dinner…. Try it again… time for breakfast….
I think I got it. I’ll get some rest and look at it again and see if I like it.
Keep your fingers crossed.
