2-MINUTE FILM CLUB-Fight: Archer (animation)

Ok, I want to do 2 movies a live action one and a 3d one, they'll have totally different stories. Is that ok ?

anyways the first one will be the animation one.

here's my idea - the camera is looking at a forest floor then 2 seed fall, after it starts to rain then the sun comes out and dries everything up. all of a sudden to plants start to sprout and start fighting over the sun beam in the middle while they're growning. i'll probably have a "dark" ending to it.

That sounds great! It'll be a refreshing take on antagonism, I sure! I'm going to take the slap-stick approach. No guns or fists, but definately something of the sandbox variety.

thanks for the comment, i figured everyone would be doing guns, swords and fists.

the idea just popped to me while i was skating with a friend (he didn't have a good day, he fell and busted his arm pretty bad and the blood made me dizzy so i started thinking about other stuff to distract me from that and i think thats how i got the idea)

anyways here's a scene test, i just started working on it today so its very early. lots more to do !

I saw both versions and I think that the first one was more "dreamy" it made a more fantasy mood although the 2nd is a little more realistic (you've watched some tipe lapse shots?) It depends on what you're looking for (mood Vs. reality) On the flower itself I just noticed the lack of a central part (the pistils?).
Apart these little details (that could be your choice to made them like so) your work is great Olivier, it always impresses me!

Nice render - I like the morning feeling it has. The camera motion feels a little mechanical to me, though. The motion of the leaves feels pretty good. Keep it up!
