Animation Mentor Winter Term '08 started today!!

Animation Mentor Winter Term started up today. I'm excited to "get back in the saddle" again. Hopefully I can devote the time I need to to really get what I want out of the class. With Mummy picking up steam it'll certainly be a challenge but I'm going to give it my best shot. This week I get to pick from the following to start a multi-week assignment with Ballie:
1. Kick a ball
2. Take a big step to the side
3. Turn around 180 degrees

Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions? Right now I'm leaning towards #2.

I think it would be funny for him to kick the "ball". Have him walk up to it and mock kick it like he is aiming eventually leading up to him kicking it really hard, and once he kicks it reveal it to be another Ballie. Now this other Ballie is either mad or sad or something b/c he got kicked. NO!! Have the Ballie that got kicked stand and then suddenly get weak in the knees and fall over, passed out. Then have the one who kicked him take a large step to the side off the screen. :D

That sounds great Frankie. Thanks for the input but I think that's a little too ambitious for my skill level at this stage. I think I am going to go with the kick though. I was thinking it would be fun to have him kick the ball and then have it bounce off a wall and hit him in the head. I'll post my sketches and video ref soon.
