Animation: The Penis Song - Monty Python, Pete Collier (Animation)

Title: Animation: The Penis Song - Monty Python
Name: Pete Collier
Country: England
Software: Maya

Burt sings the Monty Python classic 'Penis Song'. I wanted to do some quirky animation with a quirky character, so I created Burt and had him sing a masterpiece from Eric Idle. The animation is 1:01min. Enjoy and please feel free to comment.

Penis Song (Large - yes, yes I know) 7.92mb:

Penis Song (Small - yes still funny) 4.07mb:

Below is a montage of Burt pulling some cheeky faces:

I find his movements just a little strange - perhaps too fluid. Personally I don't think the animation entirely suits the rhythm of the song - I would have made his movements more cartoon-like, ie a little more jerky in places. Or perhaps even have copied the movements from the film (was it Eric Idle that sang this one in The Meaning of Life?). Perhaps a little more animation of head movements would have looked cool as well.

The big cheesy grin sure suits the song though

totally picky: the fingers are hitting the wrong notes.

I noticed one place where music goes down but fingers moving up the keyboard.

but really good bit of work

Very funny! I think the whole part of the animation where the character is getting ready to play seems very fast... I don't know if it is because you are trying to get your character there in time for the sound clip or not, but if that is the case, it is really easy to tweak your sound file to give yourself sufficient time... and the lip sync seems off sometimes. But I really like the way the character is jesturing and the way he acts... it made me laugh... one suggestion though... try adding more moving holds... we as humans seem to hit poses and hold them for a short period of time more often then simply sliding in and out of them. Good work... keep it up!
