I know that none of these are good animations. They are just good enough for what the project needed. However, I did learn new things with each of the animations that I did. Before this particular animation, I can't recal ever doing a 3D walk cycle that looked passable. I have also never done a cycle and implemented the cycle into another scene.
Anyway there are lots of flaws with this, but I spent enough time trying to figure things out that I felt it necessary and appropriate to add here.

I'm not sure how many people read this blog, but there are probably fewer people that know that I am making my own film as a personal project. So I will post this information here first in the hopes that more people will know about it. The working title of the film is 'Bedtime Story'. If you are interested to see a ROUGH version of the story in "layout" form, let me know.
I am posting this here now, because Emily Hogg at the Daily Universe on campus just posted an article about the film. You can read the article online here
There were a few things that i forgot to mention about the film in the article. One is that this is a project that's combining the disciplines of multiple departments at BYU and I only know of a few other films that have done that here, and I am very grateful for all of the help from those departments.
The other major contribution we have had on the film so far is that we were able to get some members of the local community involved. Our actor Mark is the star of our film and his family provided our set. We were able to film in his house, which was hugely beneficial as it was the perfect location for us.
