Dunno if anyone really cares about this kind of stuff but…
I recently re-found a folder featuring ALL of the thumbnails I’ve done for my fourth year films. It contains every acting choice I thought of, every staging thoughts process and character design notes. When I think about it, some of the acting choices could have made the film go in a different direction!
I usually thumbail all my shots before I even start them, so I don’t get stuck.
Some poses, I ended up drawing over 20 times because I just couldn’t figure out the performance, and it actually reading. I’d usually show these drawings to my friends to see if it registers to them, and its always great to see them give their own suggestions of pushing an acting choice.
