Jesus Houdini

I give you...the worst animation ever.
Actually - scratch that...I should call it the worst "animation" ever. The air quotes are totally necessary.
Except I suppose they're technically just quotes right now, not air quotes, but you should picture me doing air quotes to get the full effect. Because this is not really animation. It's the worst. I just need you to know that I know that. Sometimes I show you things I'm not proud of, like this, which I still think is good for a laugh as long as we're all in agreement that nobody thinks this is impressive artwork.

So, with all that prefacing said and done (I'm known for extensive over-prefacing), I present you with an art video I made. I'm trying to learn my capabilities in animation, which may turn out to be very slim. I've got an upcoming video project that I'm working on and this was me trying to see if I could "animate" something using stencils and spray paint. I can't. It was such a laughable mess. But that's what I needed to know - that this is not something I'm capable of doing. Twenty minutes of stenciling turned into about 10 seconds of really, really sloppy "animation".

So here we go. It's a poor, poor video of Jesus walking, turning water into wine, and then disintegrating. 
It's ridiculous. You'll see.

  1. Honestly, I don't think this is too bad for a first attempt. If anything, it showed you how much work it'll be to fully animate a bigger project, but I think is a great first step.

    1. Thanks, Nate. Hopefully I'll be able to pull it off when it's the real thing!

  2. I don't think this is as terrible as you prefaced it to be. I kinda liked it to be honest.
