"xe:i don't understand yor website" is a two minute animation based in a post-apocalyptic world, featuring a set of unpredictably strange characters, a post box and a telephone call.
As with all of my animations the narrative is open to interpretation.
3D done mainly in Maya 6.5, composited in AfterFX 7 and Blender 2.4x
Texturing Photoshop CS and the GIMP
Music made with BC Rich, Yamaha RY8 and various midi devices, composited in SF Acid
Total time for completion 9 months.
Here's some stills from the animation...

Wow that's pretty cool! A lot of work. What compositing part did you do in Blender?
Just curious what AF lacks.

Wow, I'm really not sure what to say about that. It's some of the freakiest animation I've ever seen.

Wow completely forgot I posted here! a response at some point (albeit almost a year late) is better than no response at all.
@Andyba : Thanks Smile The main reason I used Blender was because I was interested to see what it could do in comparison to AE and Premiere. I was happy with the results back then and still use Blender today. I personally don't think that AE lacks anything in terms of a compositor when compared to Blender, I just find it easier working with a compositor within the same 3D app and dealing with a ubiquitous node-based setup. The main feature I used in Blender with regards to the above animation, is one of Blender's less popular features which is it's NLE video editor which has thankfully improved quite a bit since this project.
@baalnazzar & dustysantos Thanks for the comments. I enjoy freaky animation of any type such as Svankmajer's stopmotion movies so when my animation is described as "freaky" I feel quite honoured Smile

Very interesting style and the animation was pretty damn scary! I liked it!
