animation: Saturday Afternoon Fever

Hey all

I just finished my first film in Maya at VFS yesterday

It was animated over a period of 4 weeks with a few months of preproduction.

There are no sound effects yet, but there is music, so it's basically the finished product.

Comments and critiques welcome. oh yeah, and i'm now on the hunt for a job now so if you want to get in touch, there's contact info at the end of the credits.

(sorry for the slow-ass VFS server)

the beginning is a little irritating, becouse there is no sound, but the rest is really good

Kickass, and only in 4 weeks..... Someone give this man a job!!!!!!!!

Hey thanks guys I'm glad you like it...

yeah, i did the modelling, textures...everything...

and sorry there's no sound effects, but it'll just be ambient street noise in the background so it's not essential right now....just use your imagination in the meantime

word on the street is it's downloading really slow, so if anybody feels like hosting a mirror, feel free to....

Nifty animation, gave me the dance fever for a few seconds ;p

Pretty much like everyone else, I thought I didn't have the right sound codec. There's no sound when he puts the key into the lock, when he opens the door, footsteps, etc. But what it lacks in SFX catches up on rythm

You did that in 4 weeks? Impressive.
  06 June 2004
hah! that was great , awesome animation , great work man its amazing what you guys can do in a 6 month span(learn maya and complete a short!!) , best of luck .
  06 June 2004
Yeah very impressive.. the addition of sfx would put this over the top.. I found myself chuckling, which turned into laughing so hard I was tearing.. like this X'D

hehe.. awesome production mate.

what track is playin in the bg? i dig it.

Loved it, I'm dying laughing.

The textures and models are so great for a student, congrats on pulling this off so well.

I agree that the beginning is irritating for the lack of SFX.
