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 3.5 / 5 stars

This is a lovely animation with excellent detail, but it left me unsatisfied. The antagonist appeared and was vanquished almost immediately. Where is the build-up, the anticipation? A little back and forth character interaction would have made this a wonderful piece, but as it is now, I feel like I was given a sandwich with only a piece of lettuce between the slices of bread.

Some of these reviews are correct. It could have been longer, more in depth, backstory... But your animations... Incredible. Absoloutely perfect animation matched with the music and sound effects worked wonderfully together. I loved watching it and I am hoping there is more to come from you. Thank you!

This is good, but it could have been so much more than it is. They could have been locked in a perpetual battle playing a song with two complementary parts; each one trying in vain to fell the other when both are required for harmony.

I would have loved it (even more) if it was longer, perhaps with both sides gaining ground. allthough I understand that this would have taken a freakishly amount of time. As it is now, it's simply stunning ^^
