Primitive Theater Update!

Well now! It's winter break and that means free time. So I'll be updating a bit more with things and jazz. Woo.

Here's the second project we did this semester- Primitive Theater. Where we had to design and come up with simple characters and simple story in less than 15 seconds or so. Took about...two months or so with the set staging and lighting and animation.

My idea was a little shrimp sushi fighting for his life against a pair of chop sticks. I love to see how different the story board first starts out and then going through the different changes. I think I had to change my story ten of fifteen times. So here's the final product:

And here was the initial storyboard: What a difference!  I do not envy storyboarders...

My next project is dedicated to the Blob back home, and my buddies who joined me in our ALL YOU CAN EAT sushi nights. In which after we always swore we wouldn't do it again, and then did it the next weekend anyways! Primative Theater is next and I'm already on a good start with all the models. I love Mr. Shrimp.

I thought maybe my first post should be something computer animated, and here we are! First project of the year. A simple little ball bounce. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Compared to last year, it's like oreos and oranges. Here's to a good year! Cheers!

Oh, and here's something fun. The original storyboard! And what's even more funny, this was the third idea that I came up with on the spot and drew up in like ten seconds. My other two ideas I spent months thinking over the summer. Odd how sometimes the simplest idea is always best.
