Animation Acting Challenge #7
There are two topics to choose from
1. Getting hit by a projectile like a ball or bullet or TV or piano or anything…
2. Audio Clip from [i]Eurotrip[/i] (download attached file)
Scotty: “What happened to you?”
Jamie: “I got robbed. It was awesome!”
- Have fun animating!
- Use any rig and any animation software you like.
- Animate with any medium (3D, 2D, or stop-motion)
- You’re open (and encouraged) to post your progress here if you’d like any comments and critiques.
- No time/frame restriction on the animation. Just remember that the more complex it is the longer it will take to finish. Make it by the due date!
- You can do both topics if you have the time. (added 4/8/07) Either separately or as one animation.
- You may add time before and after the audio clip, but please do not change the timing of the audio.
- A separate final submission thread will be created. Post your final animation there. I’ll make the thread a few days before the deadline.
- Textures and lighting are optional. Playblasts are acceptable. Just make the acting clear and easy to see.
- Use any resolution and aspect ratio… but keep the file size manageable. Nothing over 20MB definitely. As for codecs, preferably one that’s common like quicktime or windows media. My recommendation would be Quicktime and less than 5MB.
- When posting progress and for final entry please state which topic you are animating.
- (added 4/8/07) Adding music is optional, just don’t make it distracting.
We’ll do this for a month (April 7th - May 7th). Then we’ll vote (May 8th - May 14th). We’ll vote for the best animation AND suggest topics for the next challenge in that time.
Feel free to ask questions about the challenge. We’re still looking to improve how the challenge is conducted, we’re open to suggestions.
-Don’t know where to upload your final animation or WIP? I recommend using www.vimeo.com. Free to register. You get to watch a streaming flash video and if you’re registered, users can also download the original video source.
-The audio can also be set to mono instead of stereo, that may help keep the file size down.
