2-MINUTE FILM CLUB-Chase : Archer & franklyn (animation)WIP

ok i really want to do this and hope i finish in time. to make things easier for me im going to use the models from my short movie but totally remake the landscape, make an enemy ship and go crazy with it.

so the story is- there's a ship flying around some what low to the ground looking for something when all of a sudden another ship comes out of no where and attacks it. it starts shooting them like crazy with missles and chases them for a while, until the ship is hit and the 2 girls bail out on the hover bikes with the enemy ship still chasing them until the "finale"

im going to put up my storyboards later today but warning: they aren't very good

and i'll post wips as i can.

Cooool! Awesome work, dude! A suggestion: How about moving the handlebars forward and further apart so she has to lean forward, closer to the bike. This bike is built for speed so the rider needs to be as close to the bike as possible.


regards,

Albert

albertbarrera - thanks for comments !

ok so i've been modeling the other ship i need, and so far i've made this test animation with it.

i know the animation sucks because i didn't change the settings in the curve editor and thats why it slows down in the end. but anyways....

once this model is done i'll start with the hardcore animating!

I quite enjoyed the previews you have so far, man. Being I'm not an animator I don't make a good crit but as far as keep my attention and anticipating what's gonna happen next, you're on the right track.

One cool feature on that missile about to strike the ship would be a blinking red light - blinking slow at first as it hunts for the ship then blinking faster and faster as it nears it. I know you're on a tight time limit, though, so I wouldn't sweat the small stuff if it's gonna slow you down.

Great job so far!

pretty cool.

but the camera moves seem a bit jagged to me

albert - good idea! im going to try to do that. thanks!

scott - thanks i've fixed the cameras so they're smoother now so i'll try and upload a low res render with out AA to show.


ok todays update! started working on shot 3, its where the missile hits the ship. its not done yet.

things to be fixed:
- the explosion
- shake up the ship
- smoke trail from the ship
- add light to the explosion

you can see what i've made so far - www.archerx.com/Stuff/shot3.avi
