Finished Animation!

Posted: August 20, 2012 in animations

The short team project I have been working on with two other students from DePaul is finished! – well, as “finished” as any animation can ever truly be, anyway. It’s entitled “Treasure Dogs” and if you don’t know anything about it yet, it was conceived to look like a ‘paper cutout’ animation, only it was actually done in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects with editing work done in Premiere. It’s an interesting little piece that required a lot of adaptation and learning of new skills (especially in AE), but it was a great experience. As such a small team, we all had our hands in pretty much everything, but we gave ourselves credit for a few main tasks. So, without giving anything away, here it is. Take a look!

Also, I just recently did a stint as a student volunteer at the DePaul booth at SIGGRAPH 2012. While we were there, we did some “guerrilla” stop-motion replacement animations with this crazy character modeled in Maya and then printed out and assembled out of matboard. It was really fun and we got some cool animations to show off (not to mention all of the buzz we created on the floor) to boot! Check them out here:
So, now it’s off to create the next thing! Until next time, animation fans! 😉
