Snowman walk

Few people wanted to see this guy animated so here it is. Believe it or not this was animated in Maya. I placed the walk cycle on a nurbs plane and animated the UV :-) I have been told I could have just used Photoshop. I will give it a try next time or maybe use Plastic Animation Paper since it is free.

and while I am at it, here is a little teaser I made with my new camera using some footage I shot during my last Animation Collaborative character design class with Albert Lozano and Chris Sasaki.

    Interesting! Now am intrigued about the AC Class…btw, whats the name of the song of the teaser? I liked those lyrics.

    Hey David, I can’t remember what the song is. To tell you everything my flatmate suggested me to use that track. (Got it “These Days” by Foo Fighters)
    Animation Collaborative (AnimC) is great

    Wow, what was the character design class like? I’d love to hear more about it. I was fortunate to visit Pixar in November- a few days before the CTN Expo and had heard that several of the artists now teach opposite the studio. Is what you’re showing, what they were referring to? Cheers!

    yes Owen, the character design class was awesome. Albert and Chris were really hands on which I really liked and they kept bringing some incredible guests like Teddy Newton, Jason Deamer…

    I had never done character design before so I learnt a hell of a lot

    Sounds like a wicked experience, how long was the course? I assume you need to live in the US to do it?

  7. Olivier Ladeuix on January 2nd, 2012 13:40

    it is across the road from Pixar Owen so yeah, you need to live in the San Francisco area. We were three who came from abroad just for the course and it was well worth it.

    Oh cool, did you need a specific visa in order to stay in the US for however long the course lasted? Apologies for the ton of questions :)

    I don’t think it is possible to get a student visa for such schooling so the 90 days Tourist Visa was the only option
