    Animation Major Project

    Hey guys, I've just completed my final animation at university and wanted to share it and get some feedback. It's already been submitted for marking, but i've got just a few weeks until our degree show and want to work on it for then.

    I was free to do anything I wanted, so I used this chance to learn all the stuff I did'nt get round to learning during the two previous years. The trade off is that there is a lack of purpose. Its more style over substance than I would have liked.

    Hope you enjoy, and look forward to hearing your C&C

    ps if you don't like clowns or spiders, this might not be for you

    yeah i liked it! only two things stands out for me you might consider looking into.
    1. walk-soundeffect when the spiderclown enters.
    2. the cones that get thrown away at the end just disappear.

    i really like how everything moves with life, you avoided the stiffness i have seen so often in computer animation.

    cool Nice atmosphere

    Hmm.. for some tips. I would make the clowns swing in the end, before the curtains close, a little faster. anticipation longer and then swing just before the curtains are fully closed.

    And maybe the overall lighting could be a little darker. The less details of the environment you'll see, the more you're mind can fill in and it gets even scarier

    looks awesome. Im not an animator myself, but from just a viewer standpoint, the swing seems like it needs to be sped up.

    Did you have trouble with the attachment of the things he's jugglign with (vocabulary pitfall)? Check your arcs on these as they jump in his hand and leave as well.
    The swing was already mentionned.

    veeeeeeeeeery creepy. I hope this is what you went for ehe
