Animation concept - 1 minute film by Panimated Animation concept - 1 minute film by Panimated
ooohohorsesandpenguinsyouguys

I'm so excited to start my one-minute-project!
This is the biggest assignment we get as first year students at animation here at my uni. We get to do pretty much whatever we wish to do, only thing is it has to be a whole minute long. Which-if you know animation.. is quite a lot.
We got a theme too, "contrast". This is pretty much just to start us up, at as you might argue- you can find contrast in anyythiiing.

If you read my journal you might already know that I've decided on the concept-but hadn't figured out the details. So this deviation should make things a liiittle bit clearer. I decided on the raven and the ermine, and as they fight over the "marble" (using fire/lava and water/ice), they turn it into the earth... CREATION-MYTHS, WOO! They are cool- I wish they were true.. These are just sketches and concepts though, nothing final is decided yet, like style and the detailed narrative. And yes, I will try my best to make it frame-by-frame animated.. by hand. yes. omgimsoexited.

My biggest problem is the music though. I think I want some native-american-ish music, or traditional celtic/nordic stuff. The music can't be copyrighted -of course... god I wish I could make music. hnnng

Even though I'm such a norwegian and ignore valentine's day completely- me and a friend of mine drawed about 9 valentine-walruses, each with their own nationality! Maybe we made yours.. FIND OUT HERE: [link] (such a cliff-hanger)

All right, let me know what you think about the concept! Suggestions are always welcome, like, how should they interact? What maneuvers, what "moves", how could it end? I need as many ideas as I can get!

And which of the two is your favourite? :D

See you in the comment section - and have an awesome weekend :3

Royalty free music: incompetech.com there's loads of music there so I'm sure you can find the perfect one that you need!

Incompetech's music is a bit overused, I think, but still usable! I've got it as an emergency-plan, in case I can't get anything customizable :meow:

I love the concept!! Also if they do sustain injuries then it could be of the other element. (The Ermine has lava, and the raven has ice) I know you will do this amazingly!! Good luck!

DUUUuuuUUUuuuude! I am workin on a 3 minute animation with tribal animals XD
Let me know if you want some music. I like writing for other ppl, and the I like tribal stuff the most :D
Good luck! Cant wait to see more of your work.

ooooooh cooool! three minutes! I kind of want more time on my animation, because it will make it easier to establish characters and even a bit of a narrative. So this one is mostly just to show off our basic visual skills =P Next year I think we're doing three minutes, so that'll be a good chance!
Holycrap that would be awesome, getting music is so hard. Especially customized music. Do you have some music uploaded somewhere so I could check out?
...And why haven't I watched you yet, I really thought I had ›_‹

Thank you much! Let me know if you need anything, and good luck my friend! :D

ooOOohgosh that's so nice! It has that energy that's hard to find :D I like the 8-bit-like ones, pity that would be totally out of place in my animation, hehe... And I like the vocals!
I'll be keeping the offer in mind, for sure. I'm making the storyboards this week, when I'm done I might just send you a copy :la:
And oh wow, you quit your job to work on the 3-min film? That's dedication! phhf, sure you can finish it. Is it the one called Raindancer, that you've uploaded some concepts of in your gallery? Looks coool bro! :D

:D This looks like it'll be so cool!

Maybe the Ermine had the marble first. Or the Raven. And the other animal wants it too. It seems childish explaining it. :shrug: xD

Yeah, even a minute. Not the most fun. Especially with lip synching. I hope things work smoothly for you!

I was thinking the ermine should get it first, and kind of cling onto it and.. stuff. Yeah, explaining sounds a bit childish, heh. Maybe I'll upload the storyboard!
I don't think I'll have to do much lipsynching on this one luckily, except maybe some screeches and caws. Thank you, I hope so too..!

It'll be cute though. >u<

That'd be cool to see the story board. I know there's no lipsynching. I was just saying. I've had to do lipsynch projects. I've got a big project planned that involves a lot of speaking parts. :dummy:

:iconpanimated:
Panimated Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Student Filmographer
yay, speaking! We are actually having this little side-project, where we use flash and the final product has to be 30 secs, and half of it must contain lipsynching >.< I think lipsynching is fun usually, but we got really weird soundtracks O.o We'll see how it goes!

ZombieVelociraptor Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013  Student General Artist
You're lucky you get to use flash then. Mine will have to be with Photoshop and a video editing program. Lipsynching is fun when you get to see the finished piece. I always get excited.

You guys are so lucky you get to animate a short at the end of your year ;_;
My year has been trying to see if we can get our school to start doing that..I've heard rumors it'll be starting up next year, not sure though :\
Anyway, your idea sounds great! Definitely looking forward to the end result :D
Good luck!

I can see that teachers might be sceptical to such an idea though, as it'll take a lot of time out of the year..

You forgot about the Australian walrus :(

Just kidding XD

But as for moves, the ermine would be quick and nimble, able to move over anything, kind of like a river can force it's way anywhere.

And the raven would have great sweeping strokes with it's wings, making it's flames higher with each stroke.
