The first thing I wanted to do is determine the cameras position and the entire flow of the shot.
So I did a simple animatic where I had the character in position and I could see the shot flow, and also seeing whether my thoughts were working or not.
Basically, I'm very obsessed with Blocking, and I love staying in the Blocking stage as much as I can so I get to nail down everything I want to see in the shot.
I recorded lots of video reference for myself playing the two roles. I had different takes for each character and then I chose the best ones and combined them together.
