2nd Moho Contest Submission - Marble Dreaming

Post by thatguy » Wed Apr 20, 2005 2:26 am

I'm submitting an entry to the 2nd Moho Animation Contest.

Since the theme is MARBLE/S - I submit the following 1 minute silent short entitled: Marble Dreaming

Its available for download at (1.84MB -WMV):
http://www.archive.org/download/Marble_ ... 050418.wmv

The animation was created entirely in Moho - although final splicing and WMV-ing was done with a video editor.

This is my first complete attempt at a animation short. I've made plenty of test animations, but this time I actually took the time to storyboard a concept.. There are lots of things I would love to add and fix in it - but you can only fiddle with something for so long..

so enjoy.

Very nice!

You have made the marble sympathetic by doing such a good job with the eyes. I felt myself straining with the blue marble when he was trying to bounce.

Simple and effective.

Thanks for the encouragement.. I did this in an afternoon/evening when my wife and kid were away and I had some time to myself..

This contest has given me modivation to learn more about storyboarding, animation styles and moho tricks.. Now when I watch cartoons - I appreciate all that has gone into it.

Best of luck to everyone else entering.. I hope I'm not the only submission - from what I have seen - y'all are a very creative bunch.

I loved the way that you have done the marble and the clouds in the sky.
Great storyline too.
Well done and good luck!
