Bad Day at Work

I had an idea for a pixaresque short of a guy in an office having trouble with poorly behaving technology, just a thought. It has been done before yes, I believe Kofi has done something similar in the past, but it may be quite amusing to animate, plus there is plenty of opportunity for animation .... looking in Tom's direction. =P

Lights Out

Cool short!

Lights Out from cormaction on Vimeo.

This is a little animation I've been tinkering around with for a while. The original incarnation was designed for the Piranhabar reception desk which spanned 3 HDTV's so it was wiiiiiiiide. This version is a little easier to swallow on a single screen.

It follows a little robotic character who's just trying to grab some shut-eye but the factory around him springs to life unexpectedly. A serious design flaw in the factories ergonomics prevents the poor guy from reaching the off switch and the rest is history!

I pretty much did everything you see and hear here. Visuals were done in XSI, comping and grading in After Effects and sound was done in Premiere. Sound design purely based on sound effects was a new venture for me so I hope the result sounds ok!

For a stereoscopic 3D version hop on over here:
