Vimeo test

Just testing out whether my videos would work better from Vimeo. Here's the little girl skipping again, only BIGGER!!! (I hope).
Vimeo seems to have made the weight fall twice, so it slightly ruins it, but interesting to see how it looks on my blog page.

2D scribbles - skippety, skip

I downloaded some cool open source 2D animation software: http://www.pencil-animation.org/
and have been playing around with it. The idea is that I'll be able to do storyboards, animatics, and general planning and timing with it, to help with the 3D stuff. I think I've barely touched on the possibilities, but just stuck to what I could work out.
However, I wouldn't rule out random silly animations like this one.

Waking lamp

I wanted to do something slightly more creative with the lamp, rather than just following the tutorial, so I added a short sequence to the beginning of the jumping lamp to try to add a bit of character.
