I just finished directing and animating this with my team. It's 2D drawn animation in a 3D world (lightwave)

When I visit your youtube link, I get this message " This video is not available in your country."

Do you have some viewing restrictions flagged on your video?

Same error for me...but I downloaded the mediafire one.

I thought it was fantastic! I loved the 2d/3d integration....and the result was fun to watch!

Hey, really nice work. It's a great effect blending 2d animations on the 3d cards. It gives a really classic feel to the piece. Its also good to see the BBC going for something slightly different.

Nice work Pooby....who was all on the team? What was 3d, the ball? I really liked the characters too, simple and really fluid animation. Mind sharing the tools you used? What 2d software if it wasn't paper:) etc. Thanks, and again, nice work.

This is great man! I love the 'Panini stickers' feel - great work!

How long did it take to do from concept to delivery?

A 2D/3D mix is always so hard to do, it's really nice to see you and yours dong it right.

Kudos, my friend.

That was pretty cool. Fairly unique too. You nailed it on Ronaldo(the wink and the fakes).

Well, to me it looks like mostly 3D except for the BG textures and the animated footballers. That is unless someone really likes pain and did it in fusion or AE...

Great work Pooby and team- nice to see something on the front page that isn't an over grown thug, beast of creative burdon, or "booth babe" with pixie wings!

When do we get to see something on the front page showing off your facial rigging skills though?

Yeah like the beautiful Imp movie you did! It's around on cgtalk some where! that deserved a front page plug on it's own!

Good stuff, I have quite liked that intro after seeing it on the tellybobs so its good to see who has made it.

on another note I'm just surprised to see busty kelp is in Chippenham, I'm from Melksham - woo Wiltshire

Hey Pooby (and team), gratz on getting the front page!
Beautiful little spot! I loved that Marco van Basten had a orange scarf, nice touch.
Did you guys did the design of the spot too?

Wow.. here I am sitting in an internet cafe in Croatia, (with a very peculiar keyboard I may add) just sheltering from the rain and checking in and I find we've gone front page.. yey!.. thanks for that.

Most of the 2d was done in Mirage which we had to learn in an afternoon, because we were originally going to toon shade 3d objects, but I ended up bottling out and deciding we draw it instead, some 2d was done on paper. I can't quite believe we pulled the 2d off, as we didn't have much experience in this area (with the exception of Richard Bazley, an ex disney lead characteranimator)

The ball was 2d on a rotating poly. -reallz basic.. (dang kezboard)

The backgrounds were all flat polys and we had to draw all the BG illustrrations.. because it was all one shot it was a bit of a coordination nightmare as everythign had to be so frame accurate, and animating 2d out of context of the cam moves was pretty tricky. we prety much just made up techniques as we went along...

Its just been weeks and weeks of endless drawing. I totally underestimated the amount of work that goes into 2D, so hats off to those who do it all the time.

Anyway. thanks again for the plug. its stopped raining now so Id better go out and visit Dubrovnik..

Congrats on the work, its a lot of fun to watch at full rez. I think you probably made quite a wise choice there with the 2d over 3d toon-shaded! The characters really shine.

Shouldn't you be in austria/switzerland instead of croatia? ;)
