In case you weren't sick of me yet...

Starting to reconsider the direction of thesis. Perhaps it's less about people killing themselves and more about why the characters don't kill themselves. Hmmmm (ponder ponder ponder...)

While you're waiting...

Rough animatics: which makes the best funny?

Hi everyone,
I have my first set of rough animatics for the "bro" skit. Which one do you guys like the best? Also, sorry I couldn't embed it, but blogger keeps denying me it's video loading magic. Tried several formats and sizes. Apparently, I'm just not cool enough. Hooray for youtube.

Version 1



Version 2



Version 3


Also, you can only watch it if you have the URL. I don't like weirdos looking at my stuff. Let me know if there are issues.

Character Design

I'll help Jean revive this.


Here's a sketchy walk cycle.

 My character is the only robot in a normal world who has ever only been influenced by the news media (it's the only signal that has ever been picked up on his antenna). You get the impression he's been a solitary creature for most of his "life". My thesis focuses around his "enlightenment", or rather him going out into the world and finding out there's more to life than just negativity and despair. He's curious, naive, and worn out; much like an adult who has been in a coma since childhood. He wears a sweatshirt to try to fit into the mundane world, the irony of which is that he's a robot and will always appear different (kind of hard to hard your head when it's a TV).

Further suggestions? Improvements? Considering shoes to add to the ridiculousness of him trying to be one of the crowd.
