Yay!  So here is what I submitted for the April 11 second club contest:



Feel free to still give me feedback, I may keep working on it...  Now it's off to Florida for a week!  :)  Thanks to everyone who helped me by giving your critiques and suggestions!

11 second club animation: 2nd Pass

Here's the progress I've made:

I worked on the first couple shots the most.  I changed her acting a little bit, and I made the guy more cautious.  I still have a lot of lipsync and more tweaking to do...  Tell me what you think!

11 Second Club Animation blocked out!

I tried this a year ago last April and failed to make the deadline (though I did eventually finish the animation...) Now that I am unemployed I should have enough time to get it done by the April 30th competition deadline, and hopefully it will be something good to put on my reel... By the way, here's a link to the competition for those who don't know: www.11secondclub.com

Anyway, this is my blocked out animation with just the key poses (I figured out how to embed a quicktime! woo!):

So please give me feedback in the comments or e-mail me! Does it make sense? Do the shots work? Does the acting work? Anything I should change to make it better? I hope to post more progress in the next couple of weeks!

Asleep



Aw... This seems to be an appropriate drawing to post since my blog has been "asleep" for a while. It also relates to one of the only interesting things that I have been up to lately, which is babysitting my adorable cousin Island. Yes, her name really is "Island" and yes, the island jokes will probably get old fast, which is why I'm getting it out of the way now before she understands!

Anyway, I'm sure no one really pays attention to this blog right now, but I am working on some new animation and I plan on posting some of that in the near future. Maybe then I will alert some of my friends and ask for a bit of feedback and/or encouragement! Goodbye for now.
