This was a project I had to do for college.
Class: Maya 2
I animated it with Maya 2009 and got a really good grade, or atleast I assume since my teacher didn't say anything negative about it. I know that it is a video but I can assure you that it is my original work,

If the NG Staff needs proof I can send them the Maya File (like the FLA Format of an SWF)
though I don't have the program Maya 2009 itself, I animated this in school :)
So I can only send in the Maya-Data File.

I would like to share it with you guys is all, and see what others think of my 3d skills.

I also am sorry for the quality, I had a little trouble exporting it to a video. And when I edited it in windows Movie Maker, to connect the camera angles into 1 whole video, it made the quality even worse.

We were limited down to only doing simple animation, like a hoping lamp or balls. Because we had only 2 weeks to finish it up and it was only a mid-term. So don't think I am lazy just because I chose bouncing balls, it was part of the assignment. Besides this was pretty tough to get just right.

The most interesting thing about this animation was seeing how human characteristics were lended to faceless, emotionless, inanimate objects.

Simple yet amusing.
