3D animation shorts based on animation challenges such as lightsaber duels, hamming it up, cartoon physics, etc.
One day, my co-worker and I started talking like 30s film noir detectives...or 30s gangsters...or The Penguin...or was it racetrack race-callers...it was definitely based on variations of the Rocky mobster characters from the Looney Tunes (Bugs Bonnets and Racketeer Rabbit). From there, my co-worker did a recording and the rest is history.
Testing swinging and scorching sound of lightsaber. Cape was rigged with an armature. Weight painted for malleability. Rig animated to behave like cloth. Burn marks achieved with texture. Glowing scorch marks achieved with particle system.
