This Schedule Is not definitive. there will be little gaps according to needs there it depends of the modeling time.

Our Team:
-Team Leader: fido972

Maybe after the period of research others team members will join us.

We are three French students.
Our first goal is not to win, but to use our knowledge, and to learn even more with this challenge as support.
it's clear that win would not be negligible even if that utopian.

Good luck to everyone

Good luck guys, you seem to be going about this the right way by planning out your time carefully. I'll look forward to see your work as it starts appearing

Hi everyone!!


M477 Thanks and good luck too you too.

We have a new team member:

- romainboitier -

It will be the only member to have a task which will be exclusively reserved for him: the sound. He will participate at the others task too.

Our progress:

for the moment we look all individually, a script, character design and background design. Afterward we shall share to choose the best and so make a story board. By waiting for the choice we shall not post our progresses to don't make you confused.

Good luck!

07-04-2007, 09:05 PM
Look's like you have the plan set! Me and some of my friends joined the EON challange, we also had a plan but the trick is to stick with it hehe. We kind of followed our but only when it was a litte bit to late :-)
Good luck


07-06-2007, 01:12 PM

07-10-2007, 08:37 AM

Here is some researches about our character’s psychology, because it will of course have consequences on their actions :
Our Amy is not a simple art lover, she’s most like an art gallery owner, she is wealthy, beautiful, clever, but she has a lot of work and cannot have a decent rendez-vous, so she’s alone. In our version, the art gallery is a part of Amy, it’s almost one and unique character : the paintings and her are here to judge John.
Our John is a pure loser, he tryes to have a lot of dates but always make BIG mistakes, he is not machist, but does not really respect women. He never had to face a girl like Amy.

the visual contrast between amy and the baby is soooo perfect. nailed it. I suppose that you wanted to say the contrast between amy and john and not the baby? So we are happy that our work make you laughing, and that the contrast between both characters is understandable. Thanks

I love it guys. Really great work from your team. Hats off to you. I particularly enjoy your sense of humor... and the audio was done really well on top of that. Also glad you pulled it off so quickly.

Cheers guys, great job-

10-29-2007, 10:59 PM
First i accidentially watched video with those look at, controllers on and wireframes... :)
The last version is very well done. Very good sounds. Lip syncing could be improoved.
What you think?

10-30-2007, 09:24 AM

Thanks for your comment.

Thanks we were working hard on it.

Lip syncing could be improoved. What you think?

For now our short for strange is finished, we are now working on another short for our school, with longer delays and less work in to do what will allow us to have a short film with better quality as I have planned.

But if someone in my team wanna improve something we will do it.

Good luck everyone.

10-30-2007, 04:38 PM
I'm impressed by your job. :applause:
You can be proud of yourself, you've done really well for a first 3D movie.
It's not easy to work in a new team, for the first time, with less than 2 month to create a complete movie (And you are the only team who finished in time!)

Nice again! :thumbsup:

10-30-2007, 10:33 PM
Great Job guys ! Sure it can be improved but for a first attempt it's very well done.
I also loved sounds and voices :applause:
The next one now.
