Animation Session 9 - Olympics Accidents - August 16 > September15

Hi Everyone,

We are back with another session and this one will be fun

Also as you might have realized we now have a Animation Session subforum under the animation forum. now you can create your own threads and post your animation there.

Moving on:

This sessions theme is: Olympics Accidents (Summer and Winter olympics)

Rules:

- Have your character have a funny or realistic sports injury in one of the sports being played at the olympics right now. feel free to go crazy with the idea and do something creative.


- No Sound

- No Dynamics

- Location modelling should be kept to a bare minimum and be simple. As long as we recognize what sport it is , it is fine.

- Animations can be between 10 - 30 seconds.

- You can use pre-rigged characters

- Camera cuts are allowed

- 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.

- This session starts August 16th and goes until September 15

- Please create a thread with your name and the animation session # and the sport name for entry. Ie: John Smith - Animation Session 9 - Swimming

- 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 and looking forward to the animations.

please visit:

www.athens2004.com to pick a sport you want to animate.

By the way , YOU CAN CHOOSE THE SAME SPORT SOMEONE ELSE IS DOING so dont feel like "aw shit pole vault is already taken" go ahead and do your own take on it.

Cheers ,
Ali

dont do any complex modelling , parented boxes are fine.

i am saying this cause there is just 2 weeks for this session and a large portion of it should be spent on animation.

looking forward to your entry!

I wish I had some time tho.... what the hell! I'll give it a try...
the worst that can happen is that I dont finish...

Best of luck to everyone!
