"It's more than that"

“'It’s more than that” is the third of three short projects but will actually be post first! Confusing? I know! Sorry, that’s how my brain works. So I’ve three shorts in development for 2019 - “It’s more than that”, “Derailed” and “Dinner is Served”.

Each time I felt I was working a project that would showcase my animation abilities, the project grew too large or became too ambitious. I decided to take a step back and work on something more straight forward. I’m known as a designer and modeller in the C4D community but I really want to showcase my animation skills so I’ve decided to publish three high quality animations.

Shovel and chest for it's more than that

The goal for “It’s more than that is to show clients that I am capable of creating complex transitions from one object to another. I wanted to do it in a fun and interesting way. The idea is a simple one, it’s how children see every day objects like a stick or a box and use their wild imagine to see it as something more. Something to have fun with. So the short will start with a stick and show it transform into different things. Things such as a sword, a baseball bat, an oar, a shovel. Anything fun and exciting.

oar and boat from it's more than that

The animation will be fast and snappy. Each object with change from one to the other rather quickly. I worried that some viewers might miss what one or two objects are. I was thinking, if a viewer isn’t paying close attention they might miss a step. Say it changing from a baseball bat to a telescope. So to try prevent that I decided to create secondary objects to help reinforce what the newly transformed object is. So when the stick transforms into a shovel, it digs frantically and a chest of gold pops out of the ground. Or when it changes into an oar it then starts to row a small boat around before transforming into the next object.

It’s a very dynamic little project to start with but I’m confident it will turn out well.
