hi guys..back to dialogue i am taking it to 2nd pass i will be checking the arc and stuff...ur C&C's plZzzzsss..

Gobelins Did it again


Man,

These guys are insane. I love each and every short movie they come up with. This is real story telling and creativity. Here in India we give importance to certain category and forget that we are movie makers or story tellers. We are gifted with everything what they have. Only thing we lack is lack of knowledge. Well time to do something about it. We have a wide variety of people, culture , environments and more than any thing we got creativity . And till now i havent seen good indian content at all. I have a few questions

What are we waiting for?
Are we not cabaple?
Arent we creative enough?

Well we indians surely dont ve much of resources, knowledge or money. Only thing we got is passion and passionate people around. So get inspired by gobelins and come up with your own content. ......go go go...:0

here s the link for the new shorts

MY FIRST EVER LIPSYNC!!

first off, i'm not in the final sem and this is not really a lipsync cuz there's hardly any dialogue!! lol, but this is sumtin i REALLY hv been wanting to do!! was killin time today and so i thought i'd record my own voice and animate hogan to it! cant tell ya how ecstatic i feel to FINALLY see my hogan talking (or rather SCREAMING!)!! lolz

well this was just a try out (to see what REALLY awaits me next sem!), so there are some mistakes i agree. wud be glad if u cud point them out for me! but all in all, i feel REFRESHED after doing this! animation ROCKS, BOUNCES and ROLLS!!!

p.s. this has also GOT to be my shortest clip!!! another achievement! roflmao :D

weight lift (WIP) blocking

another suicidal attempt! my weight lift blocking is done and it's 40 secs long!!! (i know i have a problem.. i cant think of shorter concepts!)! but this time i've got time on my side, so i pretty much think i can pull it off! (submission is on 9th jan, though i dont wanna spend more than a week on it!)

well this has been one of the MOST interesting assignments to work on! i enjoyed playing with constraints, parents, locators and stuff! and this time i didnt think too much abt the gag, just wanted to concentrate MORE on the body mechanics. and since he's lifting a TV, i wanted him to be EXTRA CAREFUL while doing that (as advised by vinay and roshan). hope that part has come out convincing enough! ;)

btw i got the idea of lifting a TV from a real life incident: when i almost wrecked a friend's monitor!! well, some of u know what i'm talkin abt! lol! :D

c&c please!

plz sign this petition against the media

ok this has nothing to do with animation... but it sure has a lot to do with all of us...

i dunno how many of us realise this, but during the mumbai attacks, the media was actually going overboard by PROUDLY giving out every cleverly planned minute detail of the movements of the NSG soldiers, loud out on TV.

and while we at home were glued to the TV screens not wanting to miss any of the details of the NSG operations, we didnt realise how foolish we actually were to have all their secret plans let out like an open book!!

the terrorists are definitely not fools living in caves. they too might have had every information about the NSGs' movements, thanks to our senseless TRP-hungry media. and who knows, THAT might have prolonged the rescue operations even more!

thus i'm here with a petition commendably created by Vishal Dadlani of mumbai asking the govt to impose more order on the freedom of speech.

i dunno how many of u agree with me, but i really really felt this was worthy. if u feel the same, do sign the petition!

IT'S TIME TO CHANGE THE NATION!!

jump

hey guys been quite a while for me in this blog!! i'm actually a WEEK behind my schedule! those mumbai attacks sure had me glued to the TV screen 24/7! well i'm finally done with my jump! hwvr, some parts i'm still not very satisfied with (the run, for instance). i'll keep workin on it as the sem proceeds... but for now i gotta get started with weight lift! do give in ur c&c.

btw vinay i changed his action in the end (as u can see). abt the walk, i tried to put in a few variations, but it screwed up the animation! i'll SURELY put in the changes bro, but slowly slowly! as of now, kinda scared not to screw up the animation! lol [:D] but DO give in ur suggestions!

spontaneity



Holla,
Was just goin through some youtube stuff. And found this video of a gr8 catch taken by Justin s kemp.Bloody amazing catch taken ever in the world of cricket and i was amazed by his spontaneous effort.

What i observed here , is how human brain responds and makes these kinda decisions in a span of mili seconds and how we react to it. This is a very important while animating too. Keep in mind about how a character could react to this kinda quick decisions and best part would be to get a better performance out of it.Enjoziiiiii
