Note: It was originally posted on Youtube ([link]) as a gift for a friend before.
Since the original was using a copyrighted music, I commissioned Daniel James (from HybridTwo) a track for this so I can post it here in DA as a film.
In this newer version, I decided to add/improve a few things. They're not so noticeable, but I feel much more contented with them. There are those that are left unedited, but I feel like it's best to leave it that way.
Artist Comment: Thank you everyone for liking it! Especially the viewers in Youtube for giving it a million views; People here in DA for giving my pageviews a boost; (And making fanarts too!) And people in Newground for supporting me to remove stolen posts. Thank you very much!
I also want to thank `InpuUpUaut for approaching and inviting me to post this video here in DA.
And lastly, of course, a friend back then for giving me the inspiration and push to finish my very first complete animation.
Update: (12/18/2009) Thank you again, `InpuUpUaut, for having this animation in DD! And to those who suggested this to be in DD. Thank you all!
Yay, I have film priviledges now! One of these days I'll use it to upload my senior animation, just as soon as I figure out why it doesn't seem to want to play. :<
Anyway, this my entry into this year's Savanijam, a 24-hour animation competition hosted by SCAD's animation club. (This was my entry last year) The task was to create an animated short within 24 hours that fit the surprise theme. This year's theme was Tension.
Oh, and this has sound! Yay! It's not much, though.
.....Ah, and I wasn't able to color one shot in the short within the time frame. .__. Poo.
This was completed in about half a semester as my final project for Animation 1 at Rennsellaer Polytechnic Institute.
It's my first serious attempt at doing anything complex in Maya.
The goal of the project was to emphasize gesture and animation of humanesque forms. Any critique on quality of animation or things that could be added would be appreciated.
(PS: I do realize it's too dark. For some reason uploading on Deviantart kills the video quality and darkens it slightly, so that the secondary prenumbra on the spotlights disappears. It's unfortunate, but I can't find a way to fix it as of yet.)
All credit for the music goes to Joel Nielsen, who was awesome enough to let me use some of his uploaded demo-tracks as background. I think it adds a lot to the piece.
**This edition of Birds of a Feather for DA's Film Gallery**
Yet again, I got the wonderful opportunity to work alongside one of the gifted music majors from USC over the winter on an original score for Birds of a Feather.
For my most beloved animated film, I worked alongside David Stanton for an original score for the animation. I couldn't be more pleased with our collaboration; the end result is a completely original film that is now ready for film festivals! Well, next year, perhaps. :3 Things are a little too busy at the moment.
I animated this short over the course of 11 weeks last summer using Macromedia Flash 8. Guh. . . that was my 8th quarter. . .eh, so long ago! Good times.
My first decent animation after college! I made it in 2005 and it placed in the top ten for Nickelodeon's animation festival! It's also shown in various other film festivals around the world. A lot of fuss over some silly little monsters! I had a lot of fun with it. Hope you enjoy it!
This is the short movie me and two colleagues ( Anais Mallegol and Fabien Fallet ) realized for our graduation in the animation school Supinfocom in 2007.
The story is about a little gypsy family going from town to town in Italy. That short is a big mix of cuteness, warm colors and dreams ! It was a lot of fun to make and hopefully I'll have another chance at making short movies again sometime.
And thanks to Yan Volsy for the music score !
