How NOT to do this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh2FybNXwzw
Not quite how it should be done http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5vJXLIdkbo
Not an object but a little something else to see how the mouth moves http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4DX3spcdP4

Just thought this was clever in making an object come alive- http://www.buzzinn.net/img/arts/brilliant-reviving-of-everyday-objects/brilliant-reviving-of-everyday-objects06.jpg

When it comes to lip synch you need to have the right voice as well as having the mouth match up. http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/characters/ – This is a site that has voice actors and who they have voiced. I find this to be useful as you can see the different characters they have done. You can also compare the characters and see if they have a similer voice to each other or sound completely different. It’s also useful because many characters have different people voicing them so you can compare them and see who you think fits better.
Example of voice actor for different characters – http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Chuck-Huber/
Example of one character with different voice actors – http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/voice-compare/Sonic-The-Hedgehog/Sonic-the-Hedgehog/
