Saturday, June 25, 2011 contest!

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 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 and some sound effects from  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.
