Here's the run down on our assignments. We are given 2 weeks/assignment. The first week is solely 2D planning, including shooting our own reference videos, thumbnail sketching and 2D planning (roughly animated on paper).
The second week is spent on the computer, that is- if our planning works out. If not, we have to tackle redoing our 2D as well as completing an animation on Maya.
This one was supposed to have our robot character experience an obvious change of emotion.
My gag on this one, however, didn't make a whole lot of sense. If I plan on putting this in my demo, I may have to re-think the idea.
