View Full Version : Bird-of-prey animation (Traditional)

04 April 2007, 02:16 AM

Its been quite a while since I logged on to CGTalk. Ive just made a post in regards to some falcon animation I made a while back; thought Id share it with you.

To me, to successfully breath life into our animation, wed spent a great deal of time to study our subject matter from life, hopefully to capture some spiritual essence of the subject. Very luckily for me at the time, there was a pair of wild Peregrine falcon happened to reside on the rooftop of the building where I was then worked. They would come and perched at the ledges of my window often. While the film was unfortunately not a memorable one, the experience of seeing these falcon was definitely something that would just stay with me!

Here is a link to this video clip with footages of my once neighbor falcon, then followed by some animation I made (1 Min./8.64 MB) -

Thank you very much Nick and PuGs for your feedbacks!

Most of the animation in the clip you saw came from a film called Quest for Camelot from Warner Bros. Features Animation during the 2-D booms period. The film was not very good at i don't remommend. Much lost opportunities during those period of time for the 2-D medium.

It will be a long hard road for 2-D to climb back to the center stage...
