The 11 Second Club holds a competition each month open for all animators, and the sound clip for May is from Iron Man 2. You can check out more info here: http://www.11secondclub.com/competitions/current. I decided to enter in my own animation, and below you can see my work in progress. The clip is about 12 seconds long, and I'm using very subtle movements in the eyes and hand gestures, but trying to make those movements speak more than their face value. My classmate has compared it to a "Godfather" feel which is what I was going for originally, so hopefully you will feel the same way. Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!
P.S. Graduation is June 1st... I can't believe how fast these past 2 years have flown by.
