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? ^^

Damn, that was intense.
Despite its short length, I'm compelled to give it a five. the music and the animation went smoothly, textures and effect were...orgasmically awesome (not to mention the ghosts were actually hitting all the right keys...big ups!)
I loved it. I wish it were longer, but it was still amazing.
