lolwut

probably done in ten minutes... I spent longer just putting the broccoli guy together and in the end kind of gave up with those copper legs and keeping them right... why he gets bow legged at the end. I had to pull out a lot of bad frames too, not that this was actually intended to be anything good. I'm still just getting my feet wet and even from this learned a lot about materials and method that will be useful in the future.

I was too nice on my last assignment, had to step it up.

Ringling Commercial

This was a project for camera and sound class where we collaborated with the intro to advertising class. In my group the film students were me, Chris Darden, and Gena Morgese and the ad students were Mike Decker and Emma Clark. On the project I helped out with some refining of the concept and previz and directed and edited it as well. I'm fairly happy with how it came out. We had a really rough start and had to reshoot a lot (fifty five total minutes of footage for a thirty second commercial...), but hit a huge break though in editing and went with a much more non linear approach collaging visuals and reactions with music.

Since I can't figure out how to embed the video without blogspot cutting off a fifth of the frame here's the youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EdTZUo5TDU,
and here you can see the other commercials the classes made http://www.youtube.com/user/RinglingDigitalFilm.

Take that!

Assignment for class where we had to have our character do a take. The beginning isn't inbetweened and there's a bit that's just on keys. I realized after starting that starting at the beginning wasn't the best idea and that I should animate the part that constituted the actual assignment first and do the rest if I had time. I'm going to have to remember to stick to that from now on and keep the story setup bits on keys.
