For those such as myself, still caught in awe by the skill; diverse colour, timing, sense of depth and general awesomeness here's some classic Gobelin' favourites for your enjoyment/inspiration.

Nice ideas Andy. I think the sky chase is an awesome, but I think I prefer the idea with the jealous previous project. Could work and be quite neat. As you have illustrated we might not need leg animation for the creator, just him sitting down immersed on his latest project, fidgeting and recoiling at the annoying robotic arm behind him or something along those lines.

hey guys, nice vids fahran i had an idea of a guy in a flying contraption with a small supporting character as they fly around trying to catch birds with a hand net, which would then be put in cages that would hang from the vehicle. the bloke scrapes to make enough money to live but loves the sky and his pet(supporting character). anyway they are failing to catch anything but then there is a beastly roar and our characters make haste to get out of the way of a behemoth of a flying giant. which the guy decides will make him a lot of money, so they throw away the net pull a lever to unfold some bitching wings on the vehicle and possible engines as well. then the chase ensues. sky chase - has to have close encounters with the beasts tail nearly destroying the vehicle, also the companion will fall and need to be rescued mid fall. gets to the point where our lead has jumped from the his vehicle on to the back of the beast and is holding on for life. all he has is a rope and a knife--- manages to climb his way to the beasts head. is ready to plunge the knife into its head but cannot do it as he sees the look in the behemoths eye. the beast seeing its chance rolls and knocks the lead off of its back and he plunges to his death -- it is a really long way to fall so perhaps the guy can enjoy falling as he feels like he is flying - fade to black...

Well I haven't had any ideas so far regarding 3rd year animation ideas which have any weight, other than the Salt Lake and Post World War City Child ideas.
Need to look for additional inspiration. I shall be looking at paintings, photographs, feature and short movies/ animations and music for inspiration.
