Stop Motion Vs. CG: The Showdown!

Hi there, everybody! This is Mike checking in, and I have some big news: Apparently, I'm a CG animator! Someone's given me a job animating talking toothbrushes! Wild, no? But never fear, this is not the end of Time and Time Again by any means. Hopefully it will be a nice way to be able to continue the film. So, I'm excited. So far the transition has not been that bad. I think growing up in the Silicon Valley has helped condition me to ease into the world of computer animation. It also didn't hurt that I worked for hours and hours with splines on the Motion-Control rig at De Anza. But of course in the end, the most important thing is the animation and the computer, model or the pencil are just tools to get what you really want out of the story!

Here's a little CG animation to hopefully tide you over!:
