Rubles Crash

Ruble turned out to be tough to animate for this shot. It was take two, the first take revealed that the aging armature under his body isn't strong enough to do what I wanted. So a compromise was done and you can watch the result below. One of the issues I had was figuring out how to transition from his stunned state of mind back into reality before he looks over to the Fish Beer. I thought of adding a pause before he looked over but made him look almost immediately. It comes across as if he is surprised at what he bumps. So in a way it still fits in. I might re-shoot the scene the next chance I get, but will see if it works when I edit this shot into the rest of the film first.
