This is pretty easy, open your script editor check echo all commands and animate it like you would without mel and you will see what you are doing show in code. This will give you a great start.

To me it sounds like you are using Maya to show the animation rather than rendering it out? It might be easiest ... if you have time to make it in a game engine, there are plenty of tutorials out there for some nice platforms. Either way your going to spend quite a bit of time coding that out if your not very fluent with mel.

Don't feel overwhelmed if you end up rewriting the code a bazillion times, and dont be scared to, just back up your code every time you add to it. (No exceptions!)

Hope it helps :)
