View Full Version : Dim Sum Fun

10-10-2005, 06:18 AM

This is my first "finished" 3D animated piece. I did this during my third term at VFS with two other students (Steve and LJ) and it seems that a lot of people thought it was funny so I decided to post it.


To explain it a bit, the assignment was to describe how Dim Sum meant to you (as a group) so we went with "rushed" and "expensive," it had to be done in 30 secinds (minus intro and credits) and you could only use visuals that were provided in two pages of a childrens book, so we had a limited ammount to work with.

For those of you new to the experieince of Dim Sum, it's kind of like Hooters minus all the white people and skimpy dressed waitresses, lots of appetizers.

There's obnoxious audio, it's safe to say you should probably turn your audio down and turn up a smidge if you need it to save your sound systems.


All done in XSI 4.2 and Adobe Premiere for layering/editing.

C&C would be great, might be a bit late to change some stuff but I'd love to know for future projects.

Dude this thing is Hilarious! It was funny when it was a wip but the final worked out so well. One of best Term 3 group projects I've seen :)

I think the timing for everything is great; it sets the perfect pace for the animation.
Keep it up the good work guys!

Ryan, thanks dood!

Tessa, yah, Casey gave us the assigment and I was "group leader/director" so I went a bit Nazi on my 2 friends and forced them to have fun on it, didnt need much forcing, but it was a great learning exp and Im super happy with the end result.

Berilac, hey thanks man, I'll get a HR up STAT! It looks TONS better anyways, just not sure about my uploader thinggy having enough free space :(

mgard, hey thanks man, hope its something good ;)
