Hi Everyone ,
This weeks animation session is about Juicebox Acting.
Now what is a Juicebox?
As seen in the picture below a juicebox is a small drink (a box) with a straw on the top (a cylinder).
The Challenge: The juicebox has to enter the scene from right , have a emotion change and react to something. In short your animation has to have a beginning a middle and an end. The juicebox HAS to have a emotion change , ie: happy to sad , sad to happy , tired to excited , etc. And the reason for that emotion change should be clear. (no jump in sadly than get happy all of a sudden for no reason and leave , we need to clearly see why the change occurs)
You have 200 frames , fixed camera angle , no textures , simple lighting. Your animation can be below 200 frames but CANNOT be
above 210 frames max , thats the challenge.
What the juicebox reacts is up to you , you can use an existing model , model something new , its all fine.
The juicebox has to be modelled and rigged by yourself for this session , which shouldnt take longer than 15 minutes , just create a box , create a 2 bone chain for the box and a 3 bone chain for the cylinder and you are set.
The box HAS to look like a box , no arms and legs on the box.
This session will go for one week instead of two.
I am looking forward to the entries.
Please post your WIP’s and questions in this thread for feedback and critique.
