This is my very 1st animation that I created based on a couple videos, one being of Kyrie Irving challenging Kobe Bryant, and the second of Uncle Drew playing pick up basketball as a Pepsi commercial. I do warn, if you have not viewed these two videos 1st, you will not understand 90% of the plays I take or the information being presented.
This animation was started on August 11, 2012 ending on October 18, 2012, a project I initially started to: (1) get some animating experience under my belt by finally "JUST DOING IT" and (2) gain some exposure, which hopefully will lead to opportunities in the professional ranks. My 1st upload was to a site you may have heard of called YOUTUBE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vyW89Vt-EU), and the 2nd was to a site by the name of World Star Hip Hop (http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhGy9xkDk7iFv40rkL) where I received over 100k views in 1 day. THANX WSHH!! Now the video has taken off on several other sites and blogs.
So I believe I can honestly say that both of my goals were accomplished, plus I received additional information and feedback from this entire process. I'm learning more about trends, what makes something go viral, seo, links, and so much more helpful information that can only add to the success of future projects.
