Hey all,

I really wanted to share the inside joke I had to do at work (Gravity Post production) after working on a penguins commercial for a new product...

http://www.ranimation.com/reel06/300.jpg

The story of the commercial was about this cute penguin (designed by Greg Rock) that is a big show off and wants to demonstrate his breakdance abilities, at one point he strated drilling himself down the ice and the hole he created combined with me watching the trailer for 300 (I did it a long time ago...) made me do this, well, you know how frustrating it gets to work on dance animation, right? so I wanted to show my "anger" in some way.

After so many e-mails requesting me to post the commercial that lead me to do this small 300 joke teaser (I know, too short...) Attached is the link to the commercial -

I think you should do a remake of 300 with an entire cast of penguins, I can totally see it, it'd be the coolest thing ever!

Very nice work. The only thing that really bothered me was the movement of the eyes and the initial couple of frames on the second penguins reaction before getting kicked.

Nice render, nice squash'y feeling animation, nice slow motion integration, overal very cool. Like everyone else I would enjoy seeing more.

Now that's funny! I love humor that is conceptual and not a slapstick based.
Ran is just THE right man to come up with a thing like that. 5 stars earned for sure! Way to go man !
(And I want to tell a little secret to the world: this brilliant artist slash character animator slash amazing person is a mastermind behind very funny upcuming line of animated shorts) that will make us lough and enjoy Hollywood even more than we do now. Behold .....

YOU RULE MAN !

Another great prove that short and simple always wins.:applause:

I just read what Millionder wrote, cant wait to see.

good luck ranimate

LOL, I got a kick out of this one too. :D Wish it was longer as well. :D

Oh, when he yells "Spar-Ta". the "Spar" part seems to get lost in motion blur a bit. At least it's mouth open doesn't read very clearly. Might have been clearer if the penquin did the two little beats with his body/head like Leonidas did in the movie.

Anyways, quite entertaining. :D

:blush: Oh.. my... god...

People, thank you sooooooo much, I will tell you the truth, I did not expect this, this is so cool, I am so glad you like it (It is very important for me :blush: )

I agree with you all, it is too short, I had one day with free time after working on the commercial and I set myself with the limit not to work extra on it (had enough time with penguins...). Plus, I wanted to leave a teaser taste to it since Im working on something else (Millionder, my good friend, already whisteled something I c).

I am really honored you guys liked it and that I actually made you laugh!

Freelanimator, Thank you for your comments man and the request you made for the forum :blush: either way man, I see you mentioned you were a quest for a long time, Im glad this piece finally made you register and be heared!

Im all blushed as you all can see (been using this icon all over the place)

Anyway, again, you ppl rock, thnx and I promise new stuff will come soon...

Yo, Im new to this forum.

A friend of mine sent me a link to this thread and im glad that im writing a comment, my first one to an awesome, funney, well done piece like this.

The spoof is awesome, so well done and funney.
I like the penguins design and the animation is apealing and fun to watch.

The commercial is great too, I think you guys really did a great job, especialy on the breakdance moves.
I just dont understand that mouth catching the dib at the end, the the #$@% (http://forums.cgsociety.org/#$@%) was that?

5***** from me. :bounce:
