"Clyde: Space Feline" for Rantonyms.com


Animation for ZIA's "Martians" video

Metropol - QuickTime movie (250K)
This is a short animation of a futuristic aircar taking off from a parking space, flying around a skyscraper and then hitting the nitrous oxide. It was more an exercise with Infini-D's capabilities than a serious work: but given my limited resources (a 68030 Mac with 5 megs) I'm still proud of it.

Dibs - QuickTime movie (650K)
And I've even MORE proud of THIS short, which actually tells a STORY about an unwelcome visitor to a Lunar colony. And I DO mean short: it clocks in at about eleven seconds (gotta be a record) even though I spent three agonized weeks sweating over the modeling/animation. Oh, and mucho apologies to Pixar... apparently they never use motion capture.

Tangenta - QuickTime movie (420K)
This was ANOTHER storyless experiment with Infini-D in which I tried to get down a realistic walking motion with a figure I modelled. To make the animation just a little more interesting, I also created a cartoon-landscape kind of environment for the model to move through... my concept was a pan-dimensional "bus stop" of sorts.

N12 Countdown - QuickTime movie (900K)
A fairly basic "flying logo" After Effects montage animation, used for various broadcast television video cues.
