Grades, you know.

It's coming along nicely!

I know there's only a tiny bit left to put in (and even that's animated and half-rendered), but I couldn't resist putting up what I've completed so far. The audio took ages to tweak so that the different sounds and music worked together, but it's finally reached a point where I can import the final segment, export the video and not worry about it.

3D Animation Test 2

On set

I'm still working on the lighting (I don't want it to be too dark to see the characters) and I need to texture the sidewalk in the background, but I'm happy with how it's looking.

Yeah, I called it a sidewalk. It's set in New York! I'm a method animator, ya hear?

On the dope

Here is the dope sheet for the initial dialogue between Norman and the cop.
'Chico' is the cop, and 'Groucho' is Norman, by the way - I forgot to re-name the voices whilst doing the dope sheet, so I have them under the names of their original speakers.
