I just finished directing and animating this with my team. It's 2D drawn animation in a 3D world (lightwave)

better version here

When I visit your youtube link, I get this message " This video is not available in your country."

Do you have some viewing restrictions flagged on your video?

oh thats a pain, sorry. It was actually posted by the BBC, not me.

06 June 2008, 08:08 PM
Same error for me...but I downloaded the mediafire one.

I thought it was fantastic! I loved the 2d/3d integration....and the result was fun to watch!

06 June 2008, 08:34 PM
Yeah the same here. Video not avalible on Youtube.
But i downloaded the QT version. And wow! Its very
good. Great concept of putting the characters in the
Cards. Animation, lighting and Shading are brilliant.
All blendet together so well. Congratulations for this
exellent piece of work!

Nice work guys!

Hey, really nice work. It's a great effect blending 2d animations on the 3d cards. It gives a really classic feel to the piece. Its also good to see the BBC going for something slightly different.

Nice work. Looks great

Nice work Pooby....who was all on the team? What was 3d, the ball? I really liked the characters too, simple and really fluid animation. Mind sharing the tools you used? What 2d software if it wasn't paper:) etc. Thanks, and again, nice work.

This is great man! I love the 'Panini stickers' feel - great work!

How long did it take to do from concept to delivery?

06 June 2008, 01:47 PM
Awesome work!

A 2D/3D mix is always so hard to do, it's really nice to see you and yours dong it right.

Kudos, my friend.

Hey Pooby! Al last! Busty Kelp has got onto the front page! well deserved! All that hard work was well worth it! Well done Paul and co :)

Kind regards


06 June 2008, 06:11 PM
Wow, Pooby, congrats on making the front page - long overdue!

06 June 2008, 06:45 PM
That was pretty cool. Fairly unique too. You nailed it on Ronaldo(the wink and the fakes).

06 June 2008, 07:06 PM
really liked the style, been wanting to see more of this type of stuff ever since i saw it in the pixar story docu.

06 June 2008, 07:46 PM
well done :thumbsup:

06 June 2008, 08:58 PM
Well, to me it looks like mostly 3D except for the BG textures and the animated footballers. That is unless someone really likes pain and did it in fusion or AE...

Great work Pooby and team- nice to see something on the front page that isn't an over grown thug, beast of creative burdon, or "booth babe" with pixie wings!

When do we get to see something on the front page showing off your facial rigging skills though?

Yeah like the beautiful Imp movie you did! It's around on cgtalk some where! that deserved a front page plug on it's own!

Good stuff, I have quite liked that intro after seeing it on the tellybobs so its good to see who has made it.

on another note I'm just surprised to see busty kelp is in Chippenham, I'm from Melksham - woo Wiltshire

Hey Pooby (and team), gratz on getting the front page!
Beautiful little spot! I loved that Marco van Basten had a orange scarf, nice touch.
Did you guys did the design of the spot too?

very very very good work man. very good idea

Wow.. here I am sitting in an internet cafe in Croatia, (with a very peculiar keyboard I may add) just sheltering from the rain and checking in and I find we've gone front page.. yey!.. thanks for that.

Most of the 2d was done in Mirage which we had to learn in an afternoon, because we were originally going to toon shade 3d objects, but I ended up bottling out and deciding we draw it instead, some 2d was done on paper. I can't quite believe we pulled the 2d off, as we didn't have much experience in this area (with the exception of Richard Bazley, an ex disney lead characteranimator)

The ball was 2d on a rotating poly. -reallz basic.. (dang kezboard)

The backgrounds were all flat polys and we had to draw all the BG illustrrations.. because it was all one shot it was a bit of a coordination nightmare as everythign had to be so frame accurate, and animating 2d out of context of the cam moves was pretty tricky. we prety much just made up techniques as we went along...

Its just been weeks and weeks of endless drawing. I totally underestimated the amount of work that goes into 2D, so hats off to those who do it all the time.

Anyway. thanks again for the plug. its stopped raining now so Id better go out and visit Dubrovnik..

Congrats on the work, its a lot of fun to watch at full rez. I think you probably made quite a wise choice there with the 2d over 3d toon-shaded! The characters really shine.

Shouldn't you be in austria/switzerland instead of croatia? ;)

prefect idea congratulation:rolleyes:

06 June 2008, 08:03 PM
That's pro.
