Seriously, seriously.

First of all, for anyone that knows me, they know that I’m not a fan of punctuation. But in this case, in the title of this post it’s needed. Not that this post is serious at all, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. I love Grey’s Anatomy, and Meredith Grey has a habit of saying “seriously, seriously” which I seem to have picked up. Due to the tone that she (and now I) say in it, a full stop is definitely needed.

Sometimes when you work for long hours in front of the computer, you start to lose sight of what you’re working on; or you just plain lose your sight. In my case, I was working on an animation of a bunny eating a rock. This is something that Taura and I wanted as an obstacle in our AR environment. If you ate a rock, you couldn’t move. This doesn’t actually happen in Choom‘s animation, so I had to figure out how to animate it myself. I don’t generally put the stop(); tag in when I start animating, so if I test the movie, its loops continuously. I didn’t yet have it all together, when I tested it, and what you see above is what came out. It made me laugh out loud a couple of time as I sent it off to friend’s for their reactions. I had to share it with the world and post it to my blog. It reminded me not to take myself or this project too seriously, and to always have fun. I hope you get as big of a kick out of the animation as I did.
