Being Mattressy

Recommended Posts

It's not often I get the time to sit down and actually use A:M - certainly nowhere near as often as I would like. However, recently I managed to cobble together this piece of silliness:

[ QuickTime6 - 5.4MB. I'm sure I ticked the 'internet fast start' box when I built this file, but it doesn't seem to be doing this, so you'll have to wait until it loads. Ho hum.]

 

Strictly speaking it should be in the WIP section, as there's plenty more that needs to be done on it, but enough is enough - I've spent enough time on it and now want to get on with something else.

AHAHAHA!!! LOL!!!! Oh Man, I love Douglass Adams! That takes me back. Read those books like a dozen times and now I think I'll read them again. I'm still sad everytime I think he will never right again.

 

Great Animation. Thanks for the memories.

It's from "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" - a witty sci fi series on the radio in the UK. The first and second series appeared in the mid/late seventies, but the third series (from which this snippet comes) was only made last year. It also appeared in book form and on the TV. There have been repeated plans to turn it into a movie, and as far as I'm aware it's actually going ahead this time.

Nice animation! I just found out about the Tertiary Phase recently.

The next two phases are to be (IIRC) the Quandry Phase and the Quintessential Phase.

 

Thanks for the kind words and links, everyone - it's nice to know that the hard work that goes into creating silliness is appreciated!

 

Although I've watched this clip many, many times over - enough to see its every flaw, and to be sick to death of it - I think it is by far my best piece of animation, and one of which I'm quite proud. Not only that, I learned a lot from doing this, and feel set to do better on my next piece, whatever that may turn out to be.

You seem like a person who would be great at doing those commericals with objects that are alive.lol..That's what I would want to do for a career if I can't ever model living things
