Great work!! really spooky, I love it You handled the animation of a heavy character really well, it really comes across that he's carrying a lot of weight. Also your backgrounds are amazing, they really helped nail the creepy mood. Looking forward to seeing more of your animations in the future!!
Oh heyyyy I have a friend who is interested in going to Shredin, do you think you would be interested in talking to her? all of my friends that are in animation school actively are here with me, but she can't afford out of country tuition (she's canadian!)
and thank you!! if I could go back and work on it i'd add more weight and subtlety to his acting but 90 seconds was a killer on pacing.
I think the best way to describe this school is what my friends and I call it - boot camp D: we do all of our beginner animation first semester, even then we don't even do the bouncing ball assignment- our very first assignment was to animate a roller coaster...then the second one was to animate "yourself as a fish" (so I chose a beta fish of course?? haha) ... we had a lot of strange assignments that weren't relaly classic animation assignments. There was the coaster, the fish, the shape-breakdown playing soccer, the dancing skeleton, the fox tail... I feel like i'm forgetting a really important one, but our final was to animate ourselves as six year olds in a finished scene (nothing too long). Mike's a super sweet guy though, his assignments are strange for animation beginning but all make sense once you really look at them. They're all basic practices in the fundamentals of animation... then we get to do a crash or burn test course on doing our films.
I wonder what i'll do next year :v I'm already thinking about it because I want a head start, too bad Id on't have a way to punch for animation paper once I leave this place.
wow..it's so different from the way our curriculum was set up, but the assignments sound so much more fun lol. Really a fish?? haha..I'd of chosen a beta as well since I have one those assignments do have the fundamentals like you said though and I think it payed off since your film was pretty damn good, especially considering that it was a first year assignment. Will you guys be learning Flash in the upcoming years? cuz that's an important program you'll need to know (unless you already know it then you're good!)
