Animated Shapes With a Hit of Hanna Barbera

Throughout the last couple of weeks I've been working in bits on this little five second piece of animation. Initially I just wanted a simple piece of animation with a shape forming fluidly into other shapes with exploring some principles of animation (squash, stretch, exaggeration, secondary action, etc.) About half way through the project I thought I'd dip into some sound design since I hadn't for awhile & I had over 60gbs of sound effects at my toes. Some more info in the project on the Vimeo page.

Help Bot 2000

Help Bot 2000

Messing around Cinema for a couple of hours & ended up making this quick robot character. Did a little in post in After Effects. Found it much more effective to use render out a depth pass & deal with it in After Effects then to have the depth of field be rendered out with the beauty pass.

I'm sure this little guy is trust worthy around your house, you know, with those red eyes.
