Art Curry - Circus Auditions - Cannon Ball Run

Hi Gang,

This will be my first Animation Session. I did some thumbs tonight so I figure I am somewhat committed now. I just hope I can see it through to the end (I've started so many little projects, I jump from wip to wip). Everybody's is looking good so far so I'm gonna try to keep up with you guys.

I'm putting the thumbs together in p'shop and will post them soon.

AAaaaaannnnd I'm an idiot.

Ali, please rename my thread to the proper format since I am too much of a nimrod to remember to read over the sticky before I post.

Thumbnails: Having a BLAST!

OK, here is the first board...more to follow.







I'm not sure I'll be able to do this in 10 seconds.
And I really have to go to bed now.
Nite,

Looks great Art!
I do think it looks like a lot for 10 secs.
AWESOME sketches by the way. Looking forward to seeing some 3D.

Thanks Greg,

I think it will add up to more than 10 seconds as well. But, I think it will be a fun and challenging piece to animate just the same. If nothing else, hopefully I'll end up with a portfolio piece.

Oh well, I guess my idea isn't very original is it?

I guess I'll chalk it up to great minds think alike, eh?
Good stuff by the way!

go for it.

Maybe if you had some unique way of getting him in the cannon. Like sternio had his clown jump in from a springboard.

I like how you put together your thumbnails btw

It looks like my boards are WAY too involved. I'm going to start the anim about halfway through - from where the canon fires and he crawls out, equilibrium all out of whack.
I'll add the intro after the challenge.
I hope to have some very rough blocking to post soon.

Hi Folks,

I've a very rudimentary video of the blocking. Take a peek and give some feedback if you don't mind:

RIGHT-CLICK ME

Thanks,

LOL, I didn't expect him bumping the camera.

Probably still too early to tell but at :09 he comes straight towards the camera and I don't know how well that'll work as being dazed going in a straight direction.

Just some ideas, when he first comes out and he's pushing himself with his legs what if he does a forward roll then he gets up? And what if he bangs his head on the cannon as he stumbles?

Hey Folks,

I updated my blocking with some more breakdown keys. It's mostly still stepped but I added some splines here and there.

RIGHT-CLICK ME (2nd pass)
