my student film - circa 1985 - The foilranger

Post by tward » Mon Jul 20, 2009 5:02 pm

I recently got software that allows me to transfer VHS tape to QT movies.
I dug up some old animations. These both were transfered from film to video at the same time. It was low a quality transfer, so they have lost a lot of color. But I'm stoked to have them as digital files now.

The Foil Ranger
I made this in my 3rd year at Sheridan College, Oakvill Ont. I made this in 1985, 24 yrs ago. It has a bit of surfing theme.

The Surf Geek
This is from the end of my 2nd year at Sheridan College, 1984, 25 yrs ago!!
It is part of group project. The main character was designed by fellow student, Michael Surry.
The assignment was to have this character come out of an elevator, "do his thing" (whatever animation each individual student wanted to do), and then get back into the elevator. Each student's animation would have this character getting on and off the elevator. I can't remember if these were all combined as group?
This is missing him going back into the elevator. The waves throws him, but I left off the part of him going back into the elevator???.
Music from J Rasmussen and friends.
