Music Video by FargalEX Music Video by FargalEX
This was a music video project I created for University. Our task was to choose a track of at least a minute in length and animate it, using 2D characters made in Flash on 3D backgrounds made in 3DS Max. The track I used is "Trip to Aloha State" by Yukari Fresh.

hey Farg the high quality version is not working, I guess it's because you got your new webbie, but I'd thought I would let u know.

It is working as I've tried it out on a few computers now - have you got the latest version of flash player installed? And what browser are you using?

But your new webbie is looking very snazzy, i like all the hidden things init...

What class are you taking? 'Cause this is definitely what I want to get into. The animation was pretty, and you got the cel-shaded look down real nice. How long were you given to do all this?

The course I'm studying is 2D Digital Animation, and I was given about 8 weeks to make it..HOWEVER, I spent 7 weeks making something that was far too ambitious, so I scrapped it and started again. The video you see here was made in the one week I had left.

Makes me anxious wondering about what would have come out of the full 8 weeks of work....

:+fav: Really beautiful work, Farg! The video fits perfectly with the music especially when it kicks in early on with that tracking shot of the two characters together. I need to get my act together and work on a music promo soon too...!

Yeah, as usual your sense of animation, design, composition and movement combined with the keen choice of sound creates a brilliantly escapist snippet.

At first I was curious why you used 3D for the background, but then re-watched and saw one mobile background. Also I assumed it was to learn the program and it negates personal toil in maintaining perspective on all the buildings.

I miss your linework, because it is usually so alive. The use of big shapes would have even been attractively punctuated if you just put two little fine lines (=) on the upper cheeks of the girl, or small lines defining upper and lower lid graphically on the eyes. To claim focus. But, your choice stands well.

When you animate fluid bodies in action, it's always a treat. That first scene with the ... blue obelisk (?) in motion has wonderful sashay using the non-existant shoulders in motion. Pro stuff. And the over shoot and settles on the girl's hair on the bridge is pure icing. Despite the fish shadow being a tad chunky, the line of action and basic movement is adept.

Always charming stuff. You shine in your animation efforts.

I used 3DS Max to make the backgrounds, I used Flash to draw and animate the characters, I used After Effects to put them together. THEND
