First Anime Studio animation! What do you think?

Post by Durand » Mon Jan 05, 2009 5:09 am

Hi, I am interested to read some comments that anyone might have on my first animation. I guess I am aiming for a "classic animation" look. Its really just a test,just something simple to experiment with. View it at YOUTUBE:' Hot Chick 2009' http://au.youtube.com/user/regdickulas

Thanks for your comment jahnocli.
What is "You cant have everything. Where would you put it?"

Why can't I have everything? And why can't I put it anywhere I like?

Ha ha ha! It's just a quote in my footer...just strikes me as funny, taking everyday phrases to their logical conclusion. As a kid, adults were always telling me "you can't heve everything"... I don't know if you ever saw "Citizen Kane"? This was a tale about someone who could afford just about everything, and at the end of his life, it transpired that all he had ever wanted was a happy childhood. Maybe those adults knew something after all.

Citizen Kane is televised here about three times a year by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, (they screen lots of "old" movies after midnight) so, I have seen it many times, and I don't think it is over rated as one of the best films ever. I'm not a buddist but we probably do have everything. In reply to systhsin75. Australia certainly has no shortage of space, but the interior of this country is beautifully empty' almost a void to most Aussies who cling to the coastal regions. It's more like a space which is unfillable.

Steven Wright used to say that line in his comedy act. Great one liner!!!

Hey chucky,
I hope I didn't cause any permanent damage. Thanks for the compliment.
People overseas don't realise that this is what real Aussie sheilas look like;
or at least what my girlfriend looks like. OOPS! I hope she doesnt see this.
P.S. I just checked out your web page, lots of great stuff. I've done a lot work with PLIP, specialising in stop motion commercials.

OMG I just saw your perfect host...classic.
I think I'll skip lunch though. :shock:
(If your Adelaide company ever needs more stop motion animators, they can give me a buzz if they like.)

Well chucky, I would love to say that ther is heaps of animation work available. I work for the above mentioned company on a casual basis,as a sculptor,mould maker, fabricator and sometimes animator. Regretably the demand for stop-motion has all but dried out, perhaps due to the shift to and ease (both technical and financial) of new media. For example I have only worked for a few of the previous 12 months. This is part of the reason I am exploring alternative methods of animation such as Anime Studio. That Perfect Host film was made in my bedroom, what with the set,lights and huge 35mm camera, it wasn't very comfortable and I'm not sure I would do that again.

Hey you don't have to tell me that Durand, I know all too well, stop motion is as dead as the original Mayan civilisation- just a few of us tribes-people wondering the planet and sharing a songs here and there.
I made that 'mechanism' thing on my living room table back in 93 (no video split with a wind-up bolex)There used to be odd bits of SM work up here in Sydney, but it has all but dried up, hell, even Disney went under up here, flooding the place with the whole Disney clique, including my twin btw (apologies to my extremely talented Disney friends- you know it's true though, how about giving a non-Disney person a break)
:) :oops: :)
.
Never mind, times change and I love all the digital tools, I'm playing with the new Mayan traditions now, great possibilities/ absolutely crap interface. If anyone else here knows maya I want to bitch about the hypershade editor/shading groups debarkle)What's up with that?
Have you seen ward 13 Durand?
My buddy Pete Cornwell did that, he's now just finished his first feature over in the states.

Yes, I have seen Ward 13. I thought it was a pretty neat SM film, good use of rapid editing, economical animation moves etc.Oh Maya, I,ve only toyed with the learning edition briefly a long while back, looked kind of slick but bulky. Chucky, Tell me a little of what you think of Maya , perhaps in comparison with 3d S Max? Where can I get this software?. Is it worth it?
