This was my entry for the “11 second club” April 2015 competition.
Animation done in Maya, with AnimSchool’s Malcolm rig and rendered in Mental ray .
There’s a nice contrast in the audio track between the characters, one more
contained and natural and the other more exaggerated, just went along with that
and tried to animate them as such. The scene also called for camera movement,
following the characters down and off the stairs.
