Better Off Undead !

Finally! As promised, here is my short film, Better Off Undead! Whew, It's just crazy to see months and months of work fly by in seconds. Seconds!!

Well so, I started Animation Mentor Jan 2007, took classes on and off for about two years, and today I'm off to the Bay Area for the AM graduation. I'm super excited to graduate and meet my class, mentors, and all the other students, from around the world!

I'll write up my thoughts about it in the next posts. But for now I just want to thank everyone who helped me out these past couple of months.
Some of you know that I ended up getting placed in a tough situation and I appreciate everyone who got in touch with me to offer up some help or give an encouraging word. I won't forget it man and I hope to return the favor someday! Godfather style!

Please enjoy, and as always, thanks for watching!

Wow man, I LOVE this! Really great work! Love the 2D, love the 3D too. One of my favorite moments was when he spins around and picks up his leg. What an interesting way to do it! Lots of stuff in there that is just really entertaining. You are talented man! Keep up the great work!

Gerald said...

Many congrats on graduation and wrapping up the short film, Bobby! It looks fantastic. You're so damn talented man.

Hammy said...

I agree with Brandon! Wowow that spinning around and joining the leg is really well done! I was a little surprised seeing this half 2D and half 3D. Animation Mentor really rocks for letting you do that!! :)

Congratulation on your graduation again!! You are talented, looking forward to seeing your success!!

Tapan Gandhi said...

Bobby this was AMAZING. everything i was expecting and more. the combination of 2D and 3D worked so well. the character going from one medium to the other was flawless.. the performance was so good it could've been stop motion and i wouldn't have noticed! i love the part when he drops down to sniff the flower like a dog. and the end. so cute.

congrats on this beautiful film :)

Awesome job Bobby! A pity about the misunderstanding but both the 3D and 2D looks great. I love the part where he screws his leg back on. Will you be finishing it in 3D?

I'll be snooping around your blog picking up tips on 2D and 3D stuff.

The Ivanator said...

I really love your sketches work, and now this short film is just lovely. Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

Constant said...

I love this film. Even though Remington is undead, he has a lot of heart! The story has the right mixture of humor and feeling. We need more Remington and Penelope!

Lel said...

Well done Bobby! you made it ^_^ I did a traditional animated piece for my end of uni piece and I know what it feels like to FINALLY finish something like that! Heres to the next one ^_^

SMAlvarado said...

Nice work! I really love the combination of the sweet and the macabre. This was spot on as far as that balance goes. Your 2D work is really solid, as is your 3D. The soundtrack choice was great.

Bobby Pontillas said...

Wow this is great man!!!

Lyle Nagy said...

That was amazing!!! I really loved the story. Good luck at Blue Sky, Im sure you'll have a blast!

Laia said...

Oh, so cute! I hope you don't mind me using cute...but the expression on the girl's face at the end...and the little flower being pushed back up again...it made me laugh and go "aw" at the same time. And I don't know how you make a zombie look both sweet and disgusting at the same time, with little tears welling up in the blank eyes...but you managed to do it! What took you months to make may have only been a few seconds long, but those were some darn good "seconds." You should be proud.
