Lip Syncs and Dialogue

I got to take a peek at some character lip-syncing and animations today! It is so cool getting to see new characters moving and speaking for the first time! I love how the dialogue (words) are written and how their mouths move in sync while they move and gesture. Remember how Lukas holds his foot, or raises his hands while talking about the monster? Those little movements make the character who he or she is. Each character has his or her own unique set of movements, such as tilting the head, drinking a cup of coffee, for example. Anja really used her hands: Without these animations and lip-syncs, the characters might as well be trees, that happen to have a voice coming out of them...somehow.

Tomorrow is a regular weekend puzzle (no contest). Come back then for a little weekend brain teaser!

I agree with you when yu said the characters moving makes them more unique.Lukas was super cute by the way,like when he had to go under the table to tell Nancy a secret.
