Hi there!

I'm working on a musicvideo... The music is made by "Jonas Kroon".
The complete track can be downloaded here: M-balla-balla.mp3 (

Here is some work in progress animation:

Very funny stuff dude, I would really like to see this one finished.
My crit so far would be a bit more exageration on the poses at the beguining, cos the music is so crazy that allows for something much more exagerated, in my view.

keep us posted.

yeah, keep us posted!
and I think closeups of the faces would be nice!
best wishes for the work,

closeups of the faces; I'll keep that in mind... I'm probably going to make things more exagerated as the music gets wilder...

really cool..please keep the update coming ..
i really enjoyed the face and feel of the character

they look alive

I just updated (
nice to here that you enjoy this :)
any C&C?

hey mr. motion!
I always enjoy your updates on this one! I'm curious about the look of the final thing! for C&C: I think this one new move where they hop from one feet on the other looks a little strange. when they jump it looks a bit as if they slip. and standing on one foot they are not in balance... this move just is not as good as all the others you made that look real natural!
personally I would also do more, faster cuts, with closups of the faces or only their mouths, since they are so important and corresponding with the music. but that is my very own oppinion, you better stick to the style you prefer!
keep it up, I' m always excited and curious when I see that you updated this!
best wishes,

THIS IS SWEET. i 2 am interested in the final look. i am aware that i am getting ahenad of you, but the synch is not right for parts of it yet... and the characters feet are slipping when they hop...

forgive my impetulance...but i am sooo frikin excited about your piece... cant wait to see the final

07 July 2004, 02:51 PM
hmm... I'll try to do something about the hop then :) I agree on that they are not in balance, but the feet have to slipp if your walking like that? try ;)... But I'm not completely satisfied with the landing of the feet... (very hard cycle to animate!)

where is the synch wrong?

My one comment would be that the animation is a little shy. It's good, but i think poses and range of motion is too limited, while the music is pretty energetic. The timing and synch works good though. I want to see it done !

Long time since last update, but here it is :)
The last 20 seconds: (

oohhh! you sure are putting a lot of work into it, looking very good too.
one thing that I noticed is the shift of weight when they hopping on one leg, it seems a bit off balance, the pelvis bone seem to rotate on the wrong direction, if u try to hop on one leg, the weight should swift th the leg on the ground, same thing with the pelvis rotation. other than that its looking pretty good. keep us posted.
