We could organize one without the Sheep guy, we just obviously couldn't award the ceremonial trophy picture.

It just wouldn't be official - more of a practice animation session.

I'm sure someone has three or so themed and suitable wave files.

I don't think it would need to be a session that has dialog...maybe, I don't know...I was thinking maybe something along the lines of someone opening a present and capturing whatever feelings they have after without any sound or anything...but if you someone has something better in mind...I don't care at all...just ready for a new one:) Perhaps we could start brainstorming right in here...so drop any and all ideas.:)

2 weeks is all enough I think, isn't it?
And RaisedByWolves? Its not only about that waves. Aren't there caracters You can Work with? But OK. The soundfiles is the must! The thing the competition is about.
Whould be my first one, but I know I can make it. I know it!
:D

That Sheep guy is obviously very busy.

The contest does not provide you with free models, Ewerybody, but it does encourage you to seek the multitude of free models that are online. This is cause the purpose of the competition is to demonstrate good animating skills, not modeling and rigging.

I know in past sessions that scary troll thing and that bald guy have been very popular models to use. They are already fully rigged and have a great range of motion/emoting.

Maybe someone who knows their current URLs can post them?


You'll have to search for the exact rules, but they want one camera (no cutting to different views), viewing the whole model (this is a full-body animation competition). Ideally, they want the character on a plain background -they don't ban scenery or environment elements, but they are not to be considered when choosing a winner.

Oh, and they have a certain quicktime format that they prefer for export.


I don't know, Mr. Wolf jump-frogging a sheep, it's gettin very tempting to just post three wave files on here...

dammit , I came home and dsl was not working.

I am just preparing a example movie for this session , it is different from anything we have done before.

but by all means , if you are itching to animate , start doing something on your own.

No its not announced. I have a few wav files that I'm starting to animate with. So while I wait for the new theme to be announced I can get busy and practice on my own.

Hey RaisedByWolves!
Thanks a lot! Very kind of you to explain :thumbsup:.

Seems to me like I just missed the last session and now its than phantom thing that never shows ("duke nukem for ever"). Like the fishing rod you're running for but is always directly in front of you.

titaniumdave: The site seems cool. But kinda distorted. Every Image I receive here is broken and the zips won't open. Is the server fallen victim to a EMP-Attack?! Never seen something like that. Anyone gotta mirror?
And plzzzz!! show us the files you already practice on! Maybe we can match a little on that :scream:

hey harmonic01- thanks for the free rig. I just downloaded it and I love it so far. I am fairly new to character animation but I'm going to try it out. thanks again.

Ah ok! I have to do a 10 seconds lipsync as a schoolproject. Would love to combine it with a challenge.... I will hang on untill this weekend to finally choose my audiosnippet....

Sorry it took so long to get back here, i've just been finishing up on my work contract,

the EA competion was in 2003 (i think) and may well run again next year (2005, haveing asked Matthew Jeffery of EA at the 'SAND games/commertials' show in swansea in the UK,
his answer being "yes I was sucsessful for us" and "..we may well run it again yes.").

I consisted of produceing 5 (again, i think) motion cycles (hero) with character
with a maximum duration of 30 seconds.

I just think it would be nice to do something with no lipsync/sound covering the basics of character animation.

Haveing had a look at a couple of things that did well, it seemed they where primarily looking at basics like timeing and weight as well as pace. Although haveing good story telling skills seem to help (funney did well).

I guess everyone right now is pretty hyped up for the opening of animation mentor, its probably a cool time to start a new challenge maybe.

? :)
