Well, I guess I have to enter now since Obnomauk created the official announcement. Golden Schlitzy here I come
The premise of my animation is that schlitzy walks into the screen test drunk (of course) dressed sort of like a pirate (eye patch perhaps) dragging a beer bottle in one hand and a wooden sword in the other. Schlitzy really wants to be in a pirate movie. Before he turns to face the camera he throws his bottle offscreen and we hear a crash and a woman screen. Schlitzy doesn’t notice. While the narrator explains the story (extremely short synopsis since we only have 30 secs) schlitzy practices his drunken sword play. The narrator then asks schlitzy to pick up the pick-axe behind him and show off his skills by removing a diamond from a fake rock sitting on the floor. Schlitzy blows him off and tries to use his toy sword to remove the diamond. The diamond comes flying out and whacks him in the head, knocking him out.
May need to cut some stuff out to keep it under 30 seconds. Most of the props I plan to use are already available or easy enough to model quickly. I plan on working on the storyboard tonight and the animation this weekend.
