This was completed in about half a semester as my final project for Animation 1 at Rennsellaer Polytechnic Institute.
It's my first serious attempt at doing anything complex in Maya.
The goal of the project was to emphasize gesture and animation of humanesque forms. Any critique on quality of animation or things that could be added would be appreciated.
(PS: I do realize it's too dark. For some reason uploading on Deviantart kills the video quality and darkens it slightly, so that the secondary prenumbra on the spotlights disappears. It's unfortunate, but I can't find a way to fix it as of yet.)
All credit for the music goes to Joel Nielsen, who was awesome enough to let me use some of his uploaded demo-tracks as background.
I think it adds a lot to the piece.
