Student Showcase - a Floury Suicide by Lee Caller

Lee Caller started at Animation Apprentice in our recent September intake, and right from the beginning he began doing excellent work. Below is a short piece of animation he just completed on the theme of a flour sack suicide, an exercise all the students tackle in order to get to grips with the knotty problem of simulating weight in animation.

Flour sack leap by Lee Caller

What we like especially about Lee's flour sack suicide is the incidental material. The music, the textures, the lighting - in short the fun and entertaining way in which lee has brought the shot to life. Lee reminds us that great animation is not merely about technical prowess, its' also about entertaining the audience, and giving a performance.

We look forward to seeing more of his work and we are certain he wil have a great career as an animator ahead of him.
