Based on Ekman and Friesen's FACS, this session is designed to give the animator a tour around their own face. I’ll supply the tools and show them how to locate, isolate, and activate specific facial muscle groups in order to elicit certain feelings.
In doing so, the animator can experience first hand, what emotions feel like in the body, sound like in the voice and look like on their face. We will also touch on how to create a truthful response.
This introductory session to emotions and emotional facial expression is the first step the animator takes down the path towards learning how to make the inner emotional connection and express it outwardly, on your face.
