jungle1001 Jungle Character

This is an animation I put togeather in after effects from a stock charcter from www.1001head.com. There are about 28 vector characters(although only half or so could be open)  on the site, so I downloaded them all and choose one to animate. I like using vector characters to animate because their usally easy, more or less, to pull apart and separate to animate each part. This one was fairly easy although I need to fix the arm.

I haven’t done any charter animations in a while so I thought this would be fun to do again since thats pretty much how I learned to animate in school. Although many find it tedious, and it can be,  I find it fun to think about how to animate the charter as a whole and each part it individual. This one still needs some work. I plan to add some second day motion to some parts as well as adjust the legs and the floating a bit. Also I need better beam and flash  sfx. Also it seems I forgot to add motion blur to some parts

The background is also stock from vectorjungle.com

and the audio is as well from a magazine which I don’t remember.

GSG 5SP Reverse

This is my submission to greyscalegorillas 5 Second Project —- > greyscalegorilla.com/​blog/​2011/​01/​five-second-project-reverse/​ . I did some color correction on the renders as well as some overall lighning additions. The colors still seem off to me depending on how I look at, especially when it flips so the orange tentacles are on the orange backdrop. It also might just be me second monitor which I have realized again is off when it comes to some colors…

I made this by using the sound effector in C4D v12, which seems to add sound differently than 11.5, which was making sure some item not null had a key frame to add a sound track.  My goal for this was to use sound effector and I learned about using espcially about adding other effector to it as well and how they work with each other.

On a side note I think that youtube did a better job at converting the video then vimeo so I posted the you tube one instead. I didn’t do it at HD res, just Standard Definition widescreen so well just assume thats the reason why..

Abstract Sound V2

Well this is what I came up with for my daily today and what might be my submission for GSG 5 Second project. Mess around a bit more with sound effector and place in the room adding some bounce to the whole object and using my circle camera rig from a expresso task homework I put together an animation. Had some issue with the lighting and the texture blowing up, which was easily fixed but the feeling is still off. I will have to work on that in AE.

Not 100% sure if I will submit this. It’s ok but I feel like it’s missing a lot. But I need to have it at least ready and shippable buy tomorrow morning. So rendered it will be.

Abstract Sound

This is my test for implementing sound in cinema 4D and trying to create an abstract shape. The animation is supposed to be for Greyscalegorillas 5 Second project. My goals are to make something abstract and use the sound effector. It took me a while to get rid of some of the jerkness that is in the song using some delay effectors but still needs a lot of work.

Tribute Animation Keith Haring Room V2

So this is my 3D room I’m working on for the RIT Unity House Tribute Animation. My Idea is to have the camera go throght to room and focus on the items in it to give it some sense of hierarchy.  I’m thinking of giving the items some animation life but not sure how I want to do it yet. I’m also thinking of adding some other items to give it a more 80’s feel but I don’t want them to seem to out of place.  This is what I plan to to show my friend who is the vp of the house an setting it up and see if they like the direction.

Originally it was a more flat design but they suggested using Keith haring design. Which while cool is way to busy for a flat design, the way I wanted to use it so I went with a room loosely based of his room/museum he painted. I feel like this may be a cop out since is a style used a lot, although I can’t think of a direct reference… but I know it is. Lets hope my friend likes it.

This is the final version of my logo animation. I added some music that I think is typical but appropriate. I added some noise to the background as well as some sound waves to add emphasis the spot music. I notice the sun dial spinny crazy fast and it took me a while to figure out that it’s due to my time remap which would take a bit of work to fix. But I kind of liked how it goes fast then slows down.

animemix logo animation

This is the end result of my 1 hr challenge. Just a simple challenge to see how quick I could animate a logo. My process was
10 min – find logo on seeklogo.com
10 min – setup logo for animation
40 min – animate

Things that I cheated at 2 min for gradient BG and shadow.

All in all it wen well. If I had more time I would have added more easing to the letters folding in and on the mix spin in. Maybe some more sfx. But thats for another day.

This is animation I did with the grooveshark logo. I was not commissioned for this just thought to make it since I use it to listen to music a bunch. I wanted to produce something fairly quick and nice so decieded to not go the 3D route and stay in 2D world. Originally had it done with just without the stars and the wave effect on the text but it looked kind of plain. So it took a second to thinkg of what more I could add to it. I had already used the wave effect for the wave in the logo so I thought that might look good on the text while the fin passes by. The stars I just added since I looked in the background of the image an saw there where stars there so it made sense to try it out and see how it looked.

I sent it to grooveshark and they replied back saying it was awesome. Which I think is very cool.
