@00:17I also think that it's important to be able to communicate simply through acting, but I also feel like I am not very good at lipsync. So it is important to really try to master lipsync.

Yeah, it's because of what the person on the other end of the phone says. I wish I could have finished this since I was going to redo the ending, but had to move on to another project. :(

This is the first animation test I did for my Animation III class... we had to animate 10 seconds of dialogue of a character answering a phone and going through an emotional change... we also had to develop our own character for it... I developed Eloi and used dialogue from Stargate SG-1 by Michael Shanks. We had to animate some bit of business at the beginning but I never finished the in-between part... and I never finished fixing the end... I'm not too thrilled with those whole thing now, but at the time I was proud of it because it was the most dialogue I had animated.

Why doesn't the pencil test category allow video files anymore? :| I really don't want to put this in film and I have no idea where to put a pencil test in here...

well here it is on YouTube, anyway... better quality: [link]

My gosh... a fabulous animator who remembers SG-1? 

How can this be?

"Remembers"? Was it that long ago? I'm feeling old...

@00:17I'm so jealous. You get these awesome animation projects where you can use voice. In our animation school we have to make animation without dialogue. It's important to tell a story without words, I know and respect that, but what I have heard is that we don't even practise well any lipsync.

Your way to animate is lovely. I really like how the character moves and acts. However, I have trouble to understand why he has this emotional change. Is it because of the person who phones him?

@00:16Sweet cheedar!

I love the emotions he goes through.

One day I'll be able to do that... but until then I'll have to suffer through my required classes! *pounds head on table*

Uh, I don't remember what it is exactly, but I think it is something like: "Hi. Whoops! Uh... sorry. (pause) Sorry to ruin your day. (pause) Bye." xD I had to pick out pretty simple and generic lines in order to make it work. ^^;

@00:17Someone gives this guy a studio like Disney so that he can make a kickass movie like Lion King... now! Slowly I start to hate all these Instant-3D-Movies that looks like shit. I want something handmade.

Btw. great animation.

Even though your animations may be pencil tests they're still very good :thumbsup:
I like the voices you use since they actually match the charactars and everything. And the movement is very fluent.
Wish I could go to animation school when I'm older but my parents won't let me because they want to do what they wanted to do --' (mostly my dad).

@00:16I don't have a clue... if I'm working at a good pace, it takes me about an hour to do a second of animation (12 drawings at 24 frames a second). but usually I don't work that fast because I'm working the kinks out as I go, and then eventually I have go back and rework and reanimate (I reanimated a LOT of this one)... if I had to take a guess... maybe around 50 to 60 hours? who knows.

Thanks :)

@00:16To be honest, it's not like 3D computer animation is less time-consuming... it's less labor-intensive, yeah... but it takes just as much revision, and a lot of time to render. @__@ I think 2D takes considerably more talent to do, especially film animation (limited animation, ehhh..) ... you really don't need to know anything to do computer animation aside from putting in numbers and maybe how things move. but I'm probably biased hahaha.

I go to Laguna College of Art and Design. :)

@00:16That's probably the one thing I'm most biased about. 3D- it's pretty and interactive and... Pretty... But not... Gwagh I should write a thesis about that someday >_>
Izzat college totally wicked? Would you recommend it to the masses of the world?

@00:16I'm really happy with LCAD... it's really small, in a great environment, has great teachers, and the programs are very adaptive (for instance, you can 'hybrid' major in Animation and Illustration... and if you major in Animation, you can either major in portfolio animation, which focuses on creating a portfolio of character designs, storyboards, layouts, etc. rather than animation; and film animation, which focuses on animation and producing a film Senior year). We recently got a new Animation department chair who is great, but he's new, so he's still sorting out the kinks. We also get a LOT of guest speakers; in the past we've had lectures by Glen Keane, Andreas Deja, etc. my brain is fried right now. I think some people wouldn't recommend a small school like LCAD, because the animation program is relatively new and it's only just starting to be recognized by major studios... but I think you get as much out of a school as you put in, and it really doesn't matter where you go as long as you have something to show for it.

yeah, that's my sales pitch, hahahaha.
