I posted this in the 3d gallery section a while ago as a still image, but I thought I'd repost it in the animation section since technically it is an animation.

Enjoy! (

woah! awesome skillzzz! :thumbsup:

wish i knew how to make a ricochet film like that...

Thanks guys! The characters were designed by Jeff Soto (, check out his work, it is amazing.

Ragdoll- Boujou is pretty easy, shoot some live action stuff on dv, track it in boujou put a 3d element in there and you're golden.

wow i remember this from a while back - must have forgot to post.

I like it when I see work that really stands out - just jumps of the page straight away. I love the palletes, and the intergration is so illustrative - such a contemporary feel to it. Technically outstanding too - This kind of work blows me away and turns me green each time. nice work guys.
for a crit - the section with the lift maybe feels a bit out of place, the change feels uncomfortable or something ( i like the `blend`when it first comes in - but its the ending of this little section that is weird ) - but guys overall this is incredible work -


I`ve just been on the site - i think you guys are really onto something here... it would be great to see some more movies posted up .. are you doing this full time ?? you must be ?

Thanks again.

Winner- We are actually still students, graduating in May. After graduation we will be doing this full time. We will have another full cg spot up at the end of this month.

All I can see is the link to a jpeg. Is the movie hidden somewhere? I'd love to see it!

I love Jeff Soto's work! I fully expected the commercial to end with some plug for a videogame.

02 February 2006, 10:30 PM
thanks again,

Skoles, it wasn't for a commercial it was just a personal tribute to Jeff Soto's work.

02 February 2006, 04:54 AM
This puzzles me. I like it better still... so I can look at it... but I love your design sense and the translation of Mr Soto's work. It seems like Im seeing him a lot these days.
