Intro::This was my very first short. It was loads of fun doing with a tad bit of frustration. However I learned many lessons in the process that I hope will make me a better animator as I continue to learn.
Synopsis: Tiko wants some breakfast. Meandering around his featureless world, he comes accross a table and learns a valuable lesson: Some things just aren't worth the effort
Production Technique: Modelling, Texturing and Rendering were done in Lightwave 7.5; rigging and animation were done in Maya 4.5
Who done it: I did all of the 3d and compositing on this one. My brother, Michael Burton, did the sound and composed and produced the music for it.
Completion Date: Fall 2003
Animatics: I had a hard time with the ending on this one. I ended up doing three differenet animatic endings and then I ended up doing something else....oh, well:). (All of these are Sorensen quicktimes)
