Hot pants got you didn't it? Well, that is my word for "short shorts" (get it?). I have been casting about for a subject which would be appropriate for a 15 second clip, and finally came up with one I like. The idea is for an advertisement for my animation studio (I have thought of stealing Nick's "Humongous Studios" or maybe "Acme Studios"), that is if I ever manage to get it off the ground.
The clip will begin with a man ("Joe") walking back and forth in front of his restaurant, wearing a sandwich sign with "EAT AT JOE'S" on it. All the people who pass by ignore him totally. Then, a roar is heard off-screen and a huge T. Rex enters and everyone scatters. The dinosaur is wearing a huge sandwich sign which says: "Get noticed! Call Acme Studios at xxx-xxxx."
I have the storyboard done, and also a 4-inch high "Joe" for use with the dinosaur. The beast has b been drawn out and I am working out the details of the armature, along with the street setting. I will need to make a 12-inch Joe, the monster, and some people for the street, and of course the background (which I might do in post).
As soon as I have some pics, I will post them.
