This animated short was assigned to my partner and I by our Animation II teacher. We were told to make an animation based off a saying of our choice, such as “Break a Leg” or “When Pigs Fly”. We chose “An Arm and a Leg” as our saying and got straight to work. My partner modeled and textured the main characters and props. I rigged and animated the characters, modeled, textured, and lit the environment, and rendered and composted the entire short film.
I really enjoyed this project because I was able to put my rigging skills to the test, go outside my comfort zone when lighting, brush up on my animation skills, and learn how to manage my time wisely.
I am happy to say this short film was an official selection of the All American High School Film Festival located in New York City.
