WIP 'Mocktails' Animation

This is my current WIP for a new piece of lip sync animation. The clip is the same one being used for the March 11 Second Club. I really liked it (probably because I am very familiar with the source of the audio clip!) and hadn't tried using the Kayla rig yet which is a Josh Sobel rig - which I think fitted well with the audio.
I modelled a cocktail glass with a straw and umbrellas to make it look like a very fancy over-the-top drink; as there needed to be reason for the young girl to doubt whether this drink was alcoholic.
I then filmed some reference footage and have starting animating and getting familiar with the rig.
