Awkward Moments - Restroom - Magarnigal

wahey! Animation challenges finally, awesome!

OK, here's the concept:

A drunken alien stumbles into a restroom and is confronted by a urinal which was obviously not designed for use by a creature of his proportions (we see by the sign on the door, as it swings open, that the restroom is for completely different shaped aliens) Nevertheless, this plucky alien attempts to make use of the urinal as best he can, much hilarity ensues....

Concepts and model's n stuff to come.

ha, sounds like a great idea!

Great concept!!!! But also sounds like alot to get in under 15 seconds. That'd be great 1-2 minute short!

thanks! But don't worry I think it will fit...just. He will enter real quick an have come to terms with the situation in the first 3-4 seconds, so should have about 10 seconds to pull off one main gag - him attempting to but failing utterly to make proper use of the toilet.

OKie, this is our alien hero, in all his polygonal glory.

And this is what the alien "urinal" is looking like so far:

The exquisitely modeled box on the left is there for a reason, which hopefully will become apparent when I get some sort of animatic happening. Bear with me.

Time for some rigging...

First pass of the animation.

animatic_03.avi 1,872kb Divx 5.02 codec

I took it a bit further in terms of detailing than I had intended, but it seemed to be working so I just went with it. Still a bit rough tho, things to fix, I'm not sure the final 'slip an fall' sequence is reading too well and its a hair overlength right now - 16 seconds. Comments and critiques welcome.

great ,very funny acting,good timing,and i love the idea.
if you push your animation in another pass,you definetly got my vote.But since you mentioned the fall
maybe just this
When he slides down he keeps on looking at his foot,maybe let him panic mildly,maybe the fall would come out better.
just a suggestion.
i took a walk with my mind and it ran away

Dude, I'm really impressed and inspired! I had an idea I was about to post for my entry, but after seeing yours, I am inspired to think of a more original and challenging direction!

Thanks for spurring us on!

This is hilarious, I cant say more about it yet.
