Short Film-'Monkey Magic'

Hey Everyone, I've just completed a degree in animation, and this is my final year film. It's taken about 5 months to complete- including Pre-Production

From memory... the slowmo parts rocked and I very much like the motion-haze effect you have going on with the character, visually it works very well.

Keep up the good work, aii!!!

Hey man thats some slick stuff, dont know how you came up with that idea for a short film but its great. The monkeys got a hell of a lot of attitude for sure, you really pulled that off well.
Send that boy out quick and go out dancing in the mean time

Thumbs down well trained monkey

Wow. Now that is what I call "well educated monkey"

I like it. Especially the the moves. There are some intersects with floor etc but that little things is not important. You've done a very good job as a character animator my friend. Also like the Dept of Field effect.

I'm looking for your future works.

Keep it up.

I've seen this for a few times now and I still find the animation incredible.

I think the set and all is pretty good, but for me, the animation is what really stands out! I work with motion capture quite often and I must say that there are moves there in that dancing that I would never think of animating manually!

The short video is pretty good in the overall, but the animation is very, very good.

Keep up the good work!
The sky is no limit! It's where my heart meets my soul!

Hey Rodi! my friend! Great job what you did here!

Great animation! Cheers!

Excellent work. The dance is pretty cool and you make the monkey dance so good...

Keep it up buddie!

Hey King_Bruce, I like the start as well mate, the camera rolling down is one of my fav's

Mark, the story had changed many times during production, maybe thats why its a bit 'odd' I hope in a good way

Tughan, The Monkey Man has been training for 5 months he is well ready for Monkey Magic Part2, lol

Hey Fabrizzzio, Thanks man, Monkey Man has given me so much trouble in last few months, and i loved every minute, but im very happy I have it all done for you guys to see

Great work Rody...

Hope to see it on the frontpage!!!
Old 06 June 2004   #13

I forget to say that I also like the way you use the camera. It couldn't be better than this for a dance video. Very cool. Very dynamic. I like it.

You also got a little John Woo inside my friend.
