The Ghost Pianist

A 3D piano duel between two ghost pianists that represents the legends Frederic Chopin and Ludwig Van Beethoven.
This project took 3 months of work.

The funny thing about this is that I animated the characters playing the exact keys for all three songs, but turned out that I wanted to focus more on the characters face than the piano keys. So I spent 2 weeks animating every key and barley showed it. Created in: 3D Studio Max

Music by: Kework Der Stepanian
Full version of the first song can be found at: tch?v=fpObI0ViwtI

Vivi anyone? ^^



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I loved it.
The artwork and animation was beautiful and reminded me of the black mages from the old Final Fantasy series. My favorite class.
I do wish it was longer. However, the time it takes to animate something like this by yourself would limit one to a short one like this.
Kudos to you!

This was good, but way too short. The flow between the two duelists needs work and overall a Beethoven mashup should have more than just Fur Elise. I liked the animation, it was smooth and the way they played piano looked accurate. Still, I would work on making another one that lasted a bit. This feels like a demo to something awesome.

Ya know, I thought this was extremly good. Classic, clear fight between good and evil. As n avid pianist, this just really touched me too. THe ccrisp, 3D animation was masterfully done by the way. A few shots got a little annoying and "in the way", but I still loved it!

Great Animation, great Music. Personally, I felt like there should have been a little bit more back and forth between the two characters before the end, as it is it feels like the other just gives up after that one piece. Overall though, I have to say it was an excellent movie. Good job.
