The story is about a guy, who is going out for a walk with his dog. Suddenly a ball flies across the field and the dog chases after it without caring about his owner, who is bound to the leash.
First step is to do reference videos and a rough storyboard. Animated sketches help to create more felxible movement. The final animation is done in 3ds Max and starts with a Blocking phase. Time to finish the task: 4 weeks.
Transfering the animation basic principles into an own shot and thus telling a short story in 30 to 40 seconds using Keyframe animation.
