Animation Challenge #4: Topic SUGGESTION

Hey everybody! I figure most people are taking it easy for the holidays I just thought we'd have an open time for suggestion and wait for the challenge for the new year.

Here's what's been suggested so far.
Unused/New/Done
  • Loses at roulette
  • Exercise gone wrong
  • Chef cooks bad meat.
  • gets stomped or shot in the foot
  • sees attractive person, does a double take
  • given bouquet of flowers
  • their baby stroller rolls away too quickly to chase
  • clothes are torn off (like in cartoons, they have to cover themselves in that funny pose)
  • a guy loses a very important object
  • enjoying art
  • talking to the plants
  • giving orders
  • teaching
  • shopping
  • Ride (i,e, theme park... or anything for that matter..)
  • Emotion change ( change from one dramatic emotion to another)
  • Martial arts
  • gymnastics
  • peer pressure
  • classic lift
  • a moving walk, with a twist (i.e. not a cycle)
  • animate to a sound effects file (like gunfire or something)
  • russian roulette
  • waking up and walking outside naked
  • rooftop jumping/chase
  • Hot coffee (or tea if you prefer) gets spilled on the character.
  • Animate to your favorite movie line (10 Second Club where are you!?!)
  • Getting hit by a projectile like a ball or a bullet.
  • Making a difficult phone call.
  • Emotional or awkward stillness (just saw your pet get run over or walked into something embarrassing)
  • Change into a super hero out fit (think superman in phone booth)
  • Has rabies
  • Perform an athletic event
  • Nonhuman action (alien or monster performs an action)
  • A character shows affection to another character
  • Hiding from an oncoming threat
  • Finding the Master Sword
  • Solo SWAT action
  • Spying on an unsuspecting person
  • Idling
  • Animate to a song
  • Super Villian planning another nefarious scheme
  • Trying to cross a _very_ busy street
  • Annoying the still-as-a-rock Guard on duty
  • Pass the ball. (A ball comes in screen left, character plays around with it, then tosses it screen right. When you string all of the animations together it should look interesting)


So just throw as much suggestions as you can. I'll update this post as suggestions come in. Try to have your suggestion open to tell a story too. I suppose the deadline for this will be until the next topic voting session.

edit: Something I realized as I updated the list...
Please post suggestions without - or bullet points. Simple lines will do. So I have an easier time updating the list

Some people seem to have some extra time for the holidays to participate in the acting challenges and would like to get the next one started right away.

If anyone disagrees with taking the first two topics off the list then please speak up or for ever hold your peace.

The next challenge will be

Chef cooks bad meat (and knows so)

-or-

Gets stomped or shot in the foot

I will check back in 24 hrs., if nobody disagrees then the next challenge will begin tomorrow.
