View Full Version : Bluegrass boys!

05 May 2002, 08:35 PM
Greetings everyone. I just finished up an interactive animation piece for the Bluegrass Hall of Fame museum kiosks. Bluegrass musicians singing and playing. The interactive is comprised of 14 individual Quicktime movies that are 30 frame loops each. So the user will pick his musician lineup and press play on the interactive. Just good clean fun.

Being that all of the animation are loops, there is some harshness when one loop ends and another one begins. Had to sacrifice something to get it to playback realtime.

Go to the following link and dlick on "Current Work".

There are two versions available: a Quicktime and a DivX 5.


By the way, the museum is in Owensborough Kentucky (home of Bill Monroe)

Thought I would give a still frame sneak peek of the movie so you guys wouldn't have to download it to see what it lookes like.:)

Rob-Very nice work! I assume you did the "TV set" too? Looks like a fun interactive feature for a museum. Also nice to see something besides monsters and babes here! (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)

Yeah, I did the tv too. I have to admit that it is a little different than the standard 3D fare, but that is part of the appeal, something different.

If you check out Newtek's website (makers of Lightwave), I have the first screen of the Bluegrass interactive in their online gallery. it si the first image on the gallery page.

Thanks for the positive comments. Cheers!:beer:
