Rather than overload one post with lots of images and videos, I'll post the animatics separately. Here are all the animatics made from the thumbnails I posted before. They have varying success, it seems the simpler that I draw the more effective the animatic is.

These are my research for the animations on this game project.
Starting sketches are used to get a better idea of extreme poses and how the body moves.
Thumbnails are then made from reference footage and the starting thumbnail sketches and are the final version of the animation idea. They are then put into animatics to see how those motions would look in sequence. If the thumbnails have any issues, a second, third etc. set are produced until the director is happy with the idea for the shot.
