Soooo, it's been a while. I've moved on to Sony Santa Monica to work on an unannounced game project and it's a little slow going. In the meantime I tried another short project at home similar to the 11-Second Club entry from last October. This time it was a contest hosted by Kevin Freeman who runs the AnimationRigs.com website. We had a choice of 5 audio clips this time, and the only rule was that we had to use the rigs from the site. The rest was up to us!
I downloaded some free geo for a background from turbosquid.com and some sound effects from freesound.org. Here's the final product:
And the good news: I won first place! So not only do I have a nice piece for my demo reel, I also have some prize cash to get something nice. :D There were some pretty nice entries from other contestants too, and I was surprised to learn who the judges were. Pretty high profile folks!
Anyway, next post I'll try to upload some WIP videos so you guys can see my animation process.
