I thought it was time to add a little more comedy to my demo reel. The thing is, I couldn't find a dialogue piece funny enough and even if the dialogue was funny I was afraid it might overshadow the actual animation. So, creating a pantomime shot seemed like the best way to go.
This was actually part of a bigger scene, which I had already started blocking out, but I thought it would be too long for one shot and so I decided to keep the "meat" of the whole idea and focus on that. It would also be a great opportunity to experiment with the Imps rigs which seemed so fun to animate (and they surely were!)
Also, the Morpheus rig was a pleasant and refreshing deviation from Bishop. I should also mention that Morpheus was created by Josh Burton and can be found on http://www.joshburton.com/projects/morpheus.asp
There's always some room for improvement but for the time being, I hope you enjoy it!
