Wobbly Wheezy

This post marks two events. First of all, I have just cashed in my V card with YouTube. After taking oh so much from the internets, I've given back for the first time in video form. Now I don't feel so bad about being erroneously honored by Time Magazine.

The second event which needs to be marked, and was the reason for my YouTube contribution, was that I made an animation. Up until today, I had created things in 3D, and moved things around manually in some weird gray virtual world, but I had yet to make an actual movie file. Well here ya go. Wheezy's very first 3D animation. It really gets good near the end, so be patient.

Pixar here I come! It took probably a couple of hours of fiddling to get that far, so I can only imagine how long it took to make this:

A young fella named Dony made that animation for his Master's Thesis. Great job, if you ask me. Although I dunno if it can compete with all the intricacies and subtleties of "Dude stepping on Box".

I think this one is going to end up being a mulligan. Just kidding, good job Wheezy. Well, actually, not really. It's a pretty useless video, but I admire what you're doing and all the hard work you're putting into this. I'm sure you will wow me in the years to come. Is this comment nice or mean?

I'm not sure, but I think you're confused. I made the FIRST video, not the second.

I too see the shortcomings of the second video (where'd the wings come from?), but that's not mine. The one that appears as though a real, live person is stepping onto a box. That's mine.

And it's clearly perfection incarnate.

Thanks for your slightly misdirected opinion. Like GOB, I can see you're not quite a target shooter. Just kinda spraying things around.

i like how you made the guy do the captain morgan knee up. good job.

although he looks like he was slightly drunk when he did it

I agree. Drunken box-stepping... but every baby beginning to take its first steps must also wheel its arms about, take drunkenly lurching steps, and fall into a few objects like sharp table edges in order to learn.

Let's face it, box guy had a happier ending than Kiwi.

This dude would own you at beer pong.

Yeah well. I never played beer pong with Rocky Theme music in the background ... so. I don't think you can really make the comparison.
