Well, I'm at the beginining of production on these shorts (I'm doing 15 five minute shorts.) Since I'm doing the entire thing myself, I decided to switch things around a bit and wanted some feedback. A few things to note: all the shorts are done using limited animation. I'm doing all the layouts in photoshop, putting together my characters in flash, animating the characters in flash, compositing everything in After Effects, doing the sweetening (both sfx and fx and music) in After Effects, final edit and rendering in Final Cut Pro. Also, after much decision, I decided to eliminate storyboards. Since it's just me and I have a clear visual image of how I want each scene to look, instead, I wrote out what each layout should look like, taking close-ups etc into consideration. Also, I'm using the mouth comp system to lip-synch.
So, since I'm doing this all myself and a lot of my dialogue is kind of topical, I decided to animate the characters, THEN record the dialogue and do the lip-synching. Originally, I was going to do the layouts, create the characters, then record the voiceovers, then animate the characters, including lip-synching.
Is there any reason why I SHOULDN'T do the voiceovers/lip-synching after I animate the characters?
