Doesn't seem like there have been any challenges lately ... but it kinda sounds like some people are still interested ...
I really want to sharpen up my animation chops, so since I don't see a challenge happening, I'll start one myself (um.. if that's okay)
here are audio clips from four different movies:
Download the zip - 360 KB (http://www.davidjmurphy.net/audio/wav-clips01.zip)
(sorry, can't link directly to the audio, my server doesn't have the right MIMEs set up or something)
Here's what they are:
---Junior.wav - from Indiana Jones. Indiana: "I came here to save you!" Dad: "Oh yeah? And who's gonna save you, Junior?!" Indiana: "I told you--" *sounds of struggling and gun fire* "... don't call me Junior."
---Mission.wav - from the Fifth Element. Military: "Major Dallas. You've been selected for a mission of utmost importance." Dallas: "What mission?" Military: "To save the world."
---Myhead.wav - from Being John Malkovich. Craig: "Mr. Malkovich, sir...With all due respect, I discovered that portal. I mean, it's my livelihood! You understand?" John: "IT'S MY HEAD! SCHWARTZ! IT'S MY HEAD!! I will see you in court!!"
---Selfdest.wav - from Spaceballs. Computer: "This ship will self destruct in 20 seconds. This is your last chance to push the cancellation button."
perhaps for that last one, for those who dislike animating lipsync (or want a more simple challenge), you could animate a character reacting to the computer's speech.
Hopefully this will get people's juices going... :D
I am in no way qualified to judge this challenge or anything... Perhaps when everyone's done we can vote on who's the best. Perhaps a mod wants to monitor this challenge?
I propose a 1-week deadline, so that we finish these by next Friday. though maybe more time is needed. I'm gonna start tonight :bounce:
What do you guys think?
Happy animating! :D
