Since Three Rings has kinda stolen the limelight of my project (Yes, they’re creating a prologue cutscene) I might as well upload here what I’ve got done on mine so far.
The main inspiration for the animation was S Kyuu Madoushi Shoukaku Shiken, which gave it a really “free” feeling that shouted “Adventure and Beautiful Outdoors” rather than “This world is trying to kill you” or “To Battle!” like something from Two Steps From Hell would have done.
I was planning to have the drop-pod being the moving part in the scenes, while it passed various Cradle denizens in the foreground: A chroma trying to eat a jelly in scene 6 but instead getting absorbed, The stranger and snipes in scene 8, gremlins (swinging their hammers to the neat rythm at 1:35 in the song linked above) in scene 9.
I was *eventually* going to finish it, but I think I’m going to have a hard time doing that now… :/
Oh well. I have plenty more plans for animations in the future:
