As much as i worked on the animation the sound i think is what gives it it's lasting appeal at the end of the day. I was deciding between a few corny techno songs but ended up with something familiar and catchy instead with a little help from jock jams. As good as i think the speakers turned out it really was a click of the button which just goes to show how easy it can be sometimes to get those realistic textures. The vampire theme took a back seat in the project until the very end although that was one of my first ideas but it did give me a reason to use a vampire hiss which reads better for making the tape look angry and the iPod scared and as long as you get that impression then i guess i accomplished something.

Also here is a rough draft of a walk in place cycle i worked on last week....this is in preparation for the acting piece coming up where he picks up the wallet. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
This is a screen shot of my primitive theater that is still early in development. Its going to be an ipod and a cassette interacting and while both of them have an ego of their own they will have a conflict over who's better....old school or new school. Its due at the end of the month.
