Work In Progress: final video 1



This has been a week of hell... matchmoving and making sure the hair didn't go wacky through the sequence...

This is the finished version of my submission so far in lowres and compressed for now (for bandwidth reasons)...

video link

BTW, how do i upload videos for this challenge?

Hope you like it. If i have time i will make more shots for it.

Enjoy...

Comments and critique are always welcome

Looks great, did you plan on doing anything with the hands as well. I think that would help too. Good work, look forward to more.

Thumbs up lol

Great! Simple and effective... Reminds me of the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It could have some more live elements, though...

Thank you all for your input... I am glad everyone liked it...

grzesiekj, infoarq: thank you for your kind words...

XminusOne: I was not planning on making monkey hands for him just because i found it funnier to have just a monkey head attached to a normal human body... Also, since i am working for my reel right now, i am trying to get as many good looking pieces on my reel without spending an insane amount of time matchmoving... Sorry but i will skip this step for now..

liveman: I didn't use any other live elements because i didn't want to draw the attention away from the two main characters... I tried it at one stage and the input i got was negative so i skipped that step in the submissions...

Really nice work! It is quite simple but works well. I agree that maybe the hands could be monkeyfied but that would be a lot of extra work (I guess)
