In my animation class this semester (3D Animation IV) our first major assignment was to participate in the February edition of the 11 Second Club competition! This marks my first time as a participant, and to be honest, well… I really wasn’t a fan of that particular month’s audio clip. It was a line spoken by Matthew McConaughey on the TV show True Detective. You guys, I don’t even know. I had a difficult time generating an idea for this line, and before I knew it we were 1.5 weeks into the competition/assignment and I was still storyboarding, so in the end I had to just pick something and go with it. Anyway, tried out the Morpheus rig this time. He isn’t exactly my favorite to work with, but I liked him well enough. Anyway, enough about all that. Here’s my animation.
It finished at #88 of 205 entries, so 11 Second Club was kind enough to stamp a little “Top 100” ribbon on the video, hah. It’s funny, a classmate and I actually placed just two slots apart from each other. Pretty neat! I’ll be keeping a closer eye on 11 Second Club from now on, and if one of these months they post an audio clip that really grabs me, I will absolutely go for it. I’m confident that I can make something much better given the inspiration.
Here’s the storyboard:
