We had to choose a 10 sec audio. I found an energetic one in Fantastic Mr. Fox where Ash freaks out because his father didn't involve him in his chicken stealing plan.

These two sketches were my first ideas for two different audios. Finally I've chosen the more energetic one. Then I recorded the reference video very quickly as the first acting impression came and then worked out the poses on the paper to understand and memorize them as much I can.
The process went quite the same as the Mime animation, except that we had the lip sync as well to animate.
