View Full Version : Animation Acting Challenge #8: So what's the non-audio topic?

Animation Acting Challenge Topic Vote
Welcome to Challenge #8

The topics to vote on (Vote for one only):
-Opening Pandora's Box (
-Live grenade toss around (like the 'pass a ball' suggestion but with a grenade)
-Perform an athletic event (any sport)

There will be an audio clip.

Please vote for one of the above topics in this thread. I will tally the votes and post the audio clip. The Challenge will start May 16th.

This may possibly be the last time there will be a topic vote like this. I feel like asking everyone to vote for the best animation is good enough, one more voting thread might be too much. If this is something that you like being able to do then let me know! Otherwise I'll just pick the non-audio topic and the audio clip for the next challenge.

edit: doh... should've started a poll :(

Oh cool! My vote is for Pandora's box.

05 May 2007, 11:00 PM
I like the idea of Pandora's box as well.

05 May 2007, 11:19 PM
I'm gonna vote for the athletic event.

I think this voting is a good idea, that way you will get maximum participation. if you just pick a theme on your own it might not be to the taste of the majority of people interested and they will just decide to sit it out.

Pandora's Box

05 May 2007, 06:58 AM
I just had an idea to do something 'hot'... As in taking something out of the oven and it's really hot or juggling a hot potato etc...

Anyway, from those topics I'd have to go with sport

Pandora's Box

and I like the voting ... in fact id like to have a vote off for the audio as well if possible

05 May 2007, 06:20 AM
I vote athletic event. I really like the idea of Pandora's box, but that seems more suitable for an effects challenge.

Pole vault, touchdown, discus... there are some good animations to be had with an athletic event.

Athletic event

05 May 2007, 06:05 PM
First post and challenge! Thought it was time to really get into sharpening my skills. :)

So...I'd also vote for athletic event. Although the grenade thing could easily turn out pretty funny, I think this one would let place for more variety and surprises.

05 May 2007, 10:27 PM
athletic event! :thumbsup:

05 May 2007, 01:45 AM

05 May 2007, 01:21 PM

05 May 2007, 06:49 PM
I would like to pick grenade just because I have a funny grenade experience I want to share!

05 May 2007, 07:03 PM
now i'm thinking of changing my vote to grenade so i can hear/see the funny story, lol

if its an event, yours should include a grenade kendall heheh...

05 May 2007, 10:28 PM

I'll officially start it tomorrow. I guess you can unofficially start it if you can count up the votes, but I'll post the audio clip tomorrow.

My vote is still for the live grenade toss around :)

05 May 2007, 12:12 AM
Well if grenade doesn't make it I'll tell you the story in another stream Chad. It involved following a grendier instructor and this miss coloring of some "practice" grenades.

05 May 2007, 12:14 AM
My vote goes to the live grenade but it seems like the athletic event is going to win this time.

05 May 2007, 02:10 AM
I vote for the Atheltic event as well.

05 May 2007, 03:58 AM
I vote for:

-Perform an athletic event (any sport)

let the games begin :)

(better late than never?)

05 May 2007, 06:00 AM
Fist post and challenge too ! :) my vote is also for the athletic event!

i'm sure it would be nice to do and aslo it'll give us so many possibilities! ho my god, i guess I'll spend much time on choosing what to do than doing the animation itself !

05 May 2007, 06:04 PM
Yeah, looks like athletic event gets this one. Drats! Live grenade toss around gets foiled again! :p

Interesting idea on voting for audio clip too. I would still like to hear thoughts on voting topics if it's really worth keeping or just simple pick topics. I'm a bit more on keeping the voting.

05 May 2007, 08:17 PM
Where can I find the audio clip for this months competition? I'm interseted in starting before I get too busy at work.
