How does an actor cry?

Internal Project

Have you ever wondered how is it that actors and actresses <like Anne Hathaway> can cry on cue?

This curious question gave our team an interesting idea. We decided to create an animated video that explains how an actor cry in an intriguing and humorous way. Specifically, we revealed fun facts about how to cry like a professional actor, or at least successfully shed a tear, even if that is with great effort.

To achieve this, we had to come up with a unique character design style, cool transitions and comical sound-effect. From the very beginning where we sketched each character, we were already mainly focused on drawing facial expressions to best portray the emotions and feelings of an actor as he tries to cry. On top of that, we used creative movements to add to the fun and personality already created by the storytelling style of the video. Check it out!
