View Full Version : TWH Intro (Announcement Animation)

10 October 2006, 03:12 PM
This is an animation we produced for a deaf organisation in the UK to go onto there web site. They asked us to design their site and come up with a character that will be the figurehead of the organisation. The animated character also had to sign in BSL (British Sign Language). Although modelling and texturing was completed a while ago, we started the animated section on the 23rd August 2006 and finished it on the 28th September. All the animation, rendering, comping, sound recording were completed in this time.... I have only just managed to have my first weekend off :) As this is the first production by my new studio, I am really chuffed with the outcome considering the short space of time I had to achieve it.

What pleases me the most is that I have had really good feed back from several top signers in the UK about the animated signing. So I guess working all the hoursí god sent wasnít to bad after all.

or this is the site we built for the client

The signs seems pretty clear, although I don't know how to read them. I think the eyes look a little lifeless. There doesn't seem to be enough emotion there. Some of the blinks and brow movements seem randomly placed. Also they feel very symetrical. I realize he's talking to the camera but it wouldn't hurt to have his eyes look away once in awhile.
Overall I think you did pretty well given the time frame you had.
Congrats on the hard work.

Can I enter the name contest?
