Bouncing Bird Animation

Share Collapse

I took an animation course last semester and tried my hand at traditional animation for the first time. This was the result.

The goal was to animate a narrative about a bouncing ball. I took it a step further and created spherical birds that bounce, rather than fly. This was partially inspired by Angry Birds.

Really nice work man!

Simple story, funny and to-the-point. I think you nailed the exercise :D

animation mechanics were well done for being hand drawn

Nice, I'd like to see this taken to completion though. It looks like you have the bouncing ball principle down though! It was cute, I enjoyed it.

...so thanks!

pretty nice for your first try alpha.


Very impressive work, Mr. Campbell! The ending was amusing, too. Just curious, what other pieces did you create in this animation course you mentioned?

Got two more on the way, hopefully.
