View Full Version : Short Film : Monkey!!!

01 January 2004, 05:01 AM
Hello, everyone.
I finally polished it and it plays with sound!
I add some particle FX and tighten up timing for Animation.
Still not sure about music, though....
I hope you like it !
Any C&C are all welcome, it would be really helpful for me.

Using Maya and After Effects, it took almost 10 + 8 more weeks.

hehehe, that was cool!

Sucks that theres no sound, where is it? it gives Music man a place in the credits?

Nice job! :cool:

Thanks !!
About the Music though, it sounds like really 'Indiana Jones', so the musician will change it soon. I'll update it anytime. Thanks again. :D

I think I need to change animation more. Any comments on that as well ? I had a long holiday, and it is hard to come back....

I think the animation was ok.
I don't like to tell people that they need to improve on an animation.
I look at it like this. It's your animation and noone but you knows how you want it to look so if it's ok for you it's ok for me.

I would love to see any changes you make though.

I agree with you, hmc4me. I'll work on more on this stuff and hopefully I can show you better stuff. Thanks again.

Hi.. I updated links so you guys should have no problem to watch this... hopefully... :wavey:

I love your design and style of models and rendering is really appealing and you did a good job animating the character.

I just love it...

Hey Taeha
Good to see your film up man, with as many different codecs as i have fingers I see.

Having seen your film before scholarship, I was wondering if you could talk about what you did during scholarship to finese your film?
I don't see any new scenes, so it must be a lot of detailed work with textures, lighting, etc.

Wish i could've been at the screening last friday.

Hope to see more, talk to you later

Hey Jesse,

Good to see you here. How's going with you ?
I posted Image about 'before and after'.

I tried some Particle FX and some more Foreground stuff. I rendered everything on 1 pass but this time I rendered alsmost everything separately. It saved rendering time but lot's of time and work for composite... but I think it is worth. Texture and Lighting was another story. I had a hard time with Maya 5.01, my original file was made with Maya 5.0 and it keeps making weird rendering error.... :cry:

And you know, tighten animation timing was one of the big deal. In addition, as you can see, now the boulder is rolling very close to him.
I hope you like the difference. ;)

Good job! Some inaccuracy of the speed and timing of things, but I think the main issue is that you finished it. and was complete and the story comes across well. Keep it goin'.

I feel that the monkey ear very round and big, looks like mouse :P

I like this movieclip.
