Animation Team Production, pt.1

So, I know I've been a little MIA lately, but for a good reason.  I have been working on a "top secret" project with my team production class this semester.  The class does an animation project for a non-profit group to help in any way that they can.  Our client for this semester was Child's Play (http://childsplaycharity.org/), the non-profit organization for Penny Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/).  If you are into gaming or comics at all, you know how amazing this experience is and how excited I got when we found out.

Here is the first installation of a blog that is happening for the Team Production class to outline the process ... Enjoy!

Egg Salad Sandwich

I think this audio clip is from "The 40 year old Virgin," found on www.moviewavs.com. Who know egg salad sandwiches could be so interesting or would make you want to jump from a building?

YouTube did a great job selecting a keyframe to display ... just watch it, it's not what you think.
