Acting Challenge #2: Post Progress; Deadline Oct. 31st

Welcome to another Acting Challenge!



The Challenge Topic is Paranoid Thief



Thank you Vood for getting this one going!



Here are a couple ideas for this topic.
  • The character has already stolen something and is suspicious that others know what he has done.
  • The character is trying to steal something and is worried he will get caught.
  • A character that has never stolen something before.
  • Woody Allen trying to steal something.
  • A macho character that cries under the pressure.
  • Use lighting or sound affects that act like an alarm.

Good luck every one!

I like your keys zeale. I think your timing needs work, and you should probably work on this one a little more before you start another animation. The timing looks flat, especialy where he grabs the jewel and it falls. Also i would do without the last key when he looks at the audience. Its as if he knows people are watching him and that throws off the illusion of him trying to steal something. The keys have good energy and the piece can turn out really good if the timing is reworked.

Cool to see you getting straight into the comp. Though to me you clip seems like he's very adventurous and daring, but the subject is "Paranoid Thief". I dont think a Paranoid thief would be so bold as to fly down on a wire and swing around. Nice work, but I think you should try more to get the feeling of him being paranoid.

My 2nd animation

Hey guys! I'm here just to explain that I'm away for this challenge until october 29. That's because I'm managing International Day of Animation (Oct. 28) in my Town. But as soon as possible I'll send new animation.

dudeacle, in my opinion your animation is great, and qpaynter I'd like to see more of your work, I like the idea of lasers, there's a bunch of things you can do with the character!!

Good work for us!!

C ya!

Thanks Zeale! International day of animation sounds great! Can you come Phoenix, Arizona and do one here , i would help of course. Ill be looking for an update when you come back.

Qpaynter i only see one thumbnail, are there others? Maybe i didnt wait long enough for them to load.
 
  10 October 2006
I've been abit busy the past few days, but yeah. Theres just a thumb there for now. Thats why I said " The clips of progress will be added shortly." ^_^ Just showing the idea of my anim.

Cant wait to see peoples animations, hopefully this will get more and more popular :P I just hope people keep on the paranoid theme. I wanna see some really mentally unbalanced thieves :P
