Ridiculously complicated contraption for achieving simple objectives (Rube Goldberg machine)
The link can be found HERE
(Watch out for the volume control before playing it!)
The objective was experimenting on realistic yet simple animation.
Simple on the modelling (simple objects) and motions (not organic animations)
Yet realistic-looking: for that purpose Source Material was gathered.
An "experimental rig" was built in my small flat at Dublin at the time.
Experiments were recorded from multiple angles on my phone.
They were then uploaded to Maya as Image Planes to be used as reference for animation.
The modelling and animation were done in MAYA(2018).
Music and Sound
The music was playe...Excuse me! Interpreted, by me on the accordion.
The song is "Sobre las Olas" by the Mexican author Juventino Rosas.
The sound effects were recorder by me and edited using Audacity.
Blender was used to mix the sounds, music and video and baking the final animation.
This animation was done for the DKIT, Dundalk Institute of Technology, 3D Animation Higher Diploma.
It was done during September and October 2018.
It took an approximate time of 80 hours to produce this animation.
