Silhouette Animation

The challenge of this animation was to use a prop, and to do everything in silhouette.  It was a very clever way for us to learn to animate to the camera.

I decided to use a character as a prop, as well as another prop, becuase I knew someone would have to have experience with this to animate a scene in the upcoming Flower Story film.  This animation helped us solve a couple rig problems, and gave me a bit of insight into how to get it done.  Also, it ends with a double Simba, because we all like Disney that much.

Flint Environment Walk

This was a test of our Flower Story character rig for Flint, the larger of the two.  The challenge was a walk through an environment with a jump (and motivation to jump).  In hindsight now, there are several problems here or there, but it was a nice test.

Also, this project has taught me to appreciate FK a lot more.
