Animation Session 8 - Phone Call - July 20th > August 10th

Hi Everyone ,


This time there is no pause between the animation sessions.

This sessions theme is: Phone Call


Rules:

- Have your character react to a phone call. He has to react to the ringer , and has a emotion change while on the phone. Emotion change examples: happy to angry , disinterested to interested , etc) The animation has to have a conclusion , meaning do not finish the anim when he is talking on the phone. no unfinished animations please.



- Since we are not using sound , do NOT worry about lip synch. your character doesnt even have to talk if you choose to do so. the focus is body acting more than lip synch.



-Location can be anywhere. (park , house , bedroom , space station , etc)

- Animations can be between 10 - 30 seconds.

- Modelling should be kept to a bare minimum , no need for detailed environments and texture maps.

- You can use pre-rigged characters

- No camera cuts. The camera has to be static.

- No need for lighting/rendering. Playblasts are acceptable , the focus of this session is animation so do NOT hide the character by making a dark scene.

- NO Sound

- This session starts July 20th and goes until August 10th.

- Please post all your WIP's in this thread for critique.

- Animation done prior to this session is NOT acceptable. please create new animation for this session.

- WIP and Final animations should be 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 , using quicktime with sorenson 3 codec. Try not to use DIV-x since there is no way to scrub the animation and it makes giving critiques that much harder.

- You can post any questions you have about the session in this thread .

-----------------------


Best of luck to everyone !

Ali

Are we restricted to 1 character or can we use more than one?

I want to animate this character:

Talking on her cell phone while taking her pet demon on a walk.

As the conversation goes from good to bad she'll start yanking the leash unconsciously and put the critter through some pain. Or keep him from a fire hydrant. not sure yet.

Ok. Serious question. Can a character react to a phone ring, but end up NOT picking up the phone, or it has to have some form of conversation?

SERIOUS question: I've a character from AlienZ project , already rigged.

Can I use it ? or it could be considered as "to take advantage"... ??
