My entry to the Strange Behaviour challenge will depict Professor Branestawm’s invention for peeling potatoes and is based on the stories by Norman Hunter and the illustrations by the fabulous W. Heath Robinson.
The Professor is as nutty as they come and exhibits the strange behaviour of constructing ingenious contraptions made out of household junk to do the most mundane jobs.
As well as showing the Professor’s strange behaviour I intend to show the strange nature of the machine itself in the animation. I aim to show details of the machine in close up and build suspense to what it actually does then show the (anti-)climax of the peeling of the potato.
This is a work in progess that I started back in 2005 from when I first started doing 3D. I never felt I did full justice to it by not completing it so I see this challenge as the perfect opportunity to finish it and get some feedback anlong the way.
Hope to see you all at the end!
