Hey all! Sorry, again, that this isn't MM 2. It's the last week of school for me, and this is one of my last projects. It is an animatic, so it is not fully animated, but thanks to my excellent composer, David Mieloch, it holds its own as a short film. Please don't vote on quality of animation -- it's actually not supposed to have as much as it does. Crank the speakers, but not too much. ;) For those of you wondering about the randomly animated scene, it is because I was allowed to do it for another class, combining two assignments into one piece. I hope you enjoy!

Somewhat amusing. Very memorable.

some selected aspects

++++ The anthropomorphisation of the chair is fantastic. You make it so expressive and it seems to move so naturally. 'Arm' to hip and ending pose both stood out.

+++ I like the distorted walls of the room, making it all seem slightly unreal to begin with.

+++ I was amused by the concept - particularly the chair and its motives.

++++ The concept is an original one that sticks in the mind.

+ Nice use of different greys to highlight things.

- Some shading or even colour might have been nice.

-- While I'm being picky, the motion as the dude walked to the chair was a bit jerky.

----- The lack of a play/replay button. Having it start automatically is kinda lame.


A wonderfully expressive animation, with a somewhat amusing story. The few shortcuts used in the animation don't detract much from that. (But it might have added.) Makes me smile.

Stay funky,
- Bez
