Since Hop is out in the UK and purchase-able in the US via amazon, I figured it's safe to post my work from the show. Sadly, I only got to animate one shot. The others on my plate were either sent over to India or had to be taken over by another animator. The one shot I had is awesome though, so I'm very happy to have it.

I am doing creative media at college and we have to create an animation, there is  a choice of file formats we can use, QuickTime is one of our options ^-^

You're welcome. ^_^ I use Quicktime mainly because you can frame through it, whereas other video file formats wont let you do that. Mov files are also playable on Windows and Mac computers. Some Linux systems have trouble with Quicktime files though, so if you want to show your work online I recommend uploading it to Youtube or Vimeo.

Thank for the advice!  I was hoping to upload it online if I do well, we have to design a drinks can and make a TV advertisement for it. My add will basically start with live footage and turn into cartoon animation, the programmes we have to assemble it in are Director and Flash, but I will be creating the animation in Photoshop.
I still feel in awe that I am actually speaking to such an amazing animator! I am doing my best not to freak out ^-^

WOW... that's SO COOL!

You're so cool!
I'm just curious, because I really want to become an animator someday as well..

How much does one get paid to animate a scene like that? :D
Just curious! You don't have to answer if you don't want to :iconhappytearplz:

Thank you! In feature animation and vfx, you aren't usually paid on a shot by shot basis. All of the studios I've worked at have paid people hourly rates. You can get an idea of the salaries for various departments within animation production here: www.glassdoor.com/Salary/Dream… The link goes to Dreamworks but you can search for whichever studio you like on there.

Thanks! I spent about three months on Hop so that's about how long I spent on the shot more or less. It went through a TON of changes though. The client didn't know what they wanted and I spent a lot of time (re)animating things only for the idea to be scrapped and having to start over.

The mid rabbit kept move a little bit after they fell.

@00:10Slow to a stop like what? When Bit slides to a stop after falling or what she's doing after the slide but before the get up?

@00:10The way she stops towards the end of the slide is called an ease in. There are also moving holds and keep alive but they're different from ease in.

Much longer than it should have, lol. I was on Hop for about three months and I worked on this shot for the majority of that time. It was a problem shot though since no one knew that they wanted. I spent a lot of time (re)animating things only to have what I'd done thrown out and the idea changed. I also had a bunch of technical issues with constraining Fluffy's phone and switching hands, ik/fk switching on their rolling, using the wrong or too many controls (XD), getting a custom blendshape for Bit's puffed up cheeks etc. There was a lot of headache but it was a great learning experience and I like how the shot turned out. =D

Geez, you'd think they'd tell you a bit of what they wanted before letting you dive in, it's a big studio for petes sake... that's very frustrating xD
Regardless it came out great, very fluid animation as well.

That's just one of the differences between feature animation and vfx. In vfx you're working with a client who more often than not, is offsite and has never worked with animation before or simply doesn't understand how animation works. Some directors have a clearer vision than others though so it varies from show to show.
