Ball Story by Swanky SOU Alum Steve Hammond
Your next bit of business is to create a 10-15 second animation using the ball rig. Click here to download the rig.
This animation must demonstrate
1. Squash and stretch.
2. Hold keys.
4. Clear staging of action and narrative.
5. Realistic weight.
6. Smooth, natural motion arcs.
Be sure to check out Steve Hammond's Ball Story (above). It's a nice example of all of these things in action using the very same ball rig. Before you start animating, you must do a storyboard breakdown of the animation which includes all of the key poses and rough timings.
1. Blog and storyboard breakdown are due by Thursday, April 8. Post your storyboard breakdown on your blog. Post your blog URL along with your full name as a comment to this post.
2. Embed a playblast of your animation on your blog (via YouTube or another video service) by Tuesday, April 13.
