thanks,

I tried to keep it simple and also i don't have the computing power to render cmplicated textures or lighting and for this one also not the time to do any texturing work. I'll record machine sounds in an old letterpress department on monday. I think sound is definetly important to keep it together.

Your robot arm/crane has a brilliant design to it, I'm really interested to see and hear how the finished piece will be.

Take it easy,

Mat.

one more. By the way this looks much nicer when moving. But that's basically it. Typeface is Chef-Dijon which is a very nice serif one. And I hpe I can show you the finished result soon.

That looks lovely, I'm interested in how you did the film strip.

Take it easy,

Mat.

Thanks again for all your comments,

@ matt,
I can see why you are interested in the film bit. There's not much to it. I bought some green paper, a black and white film and borrowed the most shite dv camera my college had (not intentional but I figured it out very quickly once I started using it) Put it all up in my room, lit and finally filmed it. The rest of the story is a lot of masking in AEF and that's it.

just recorded "machiny" sounds the only thing I need now is an old projector. And it'll all be fine.

ceers

enjoy, but somehow googlevideo blows it up really huge on my computer, so it would be worth trying to make it smaller so qualitz is not quite as bad.

Brilliant job farbtopf, in earlier posts you were saying that the sound would make it and you're right (although I do have to say that I love the animation too!!!).

Top work,

Mat.
