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? ^^

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!

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great animation, albeit somewhat short and anti-climactic. The animation, inverse kinematics and gestures of the characters was splendid. The effects weren't terribly over the top and, in my opinion, as such were perfect. The only real bone to pick I've with this piece is that the conflict between the white and black mage was not really well developed. It's like a storyboard that was missing 3-4 panels, ya dig?

Otherwise, fantastic stuff.

Really awesome! And the fact that you animated the characters playing all the right keys is an excellent touch. they seemed a little stiff at first, but they quickly loosened up. I'm also getting the feeling you have better feelings about Chopin than you do about Beethoven.
