Interaction Assignment from Humphrey Erm on Vimeo.
This was my take on the interaction assignment we had last week. Alot of fun, and a good breather from the incredibly tough Madame Medusa from before. We had a choice between two characters to interact with Hogarth (The Iron Giant): either the Sultan from Aladdin, or Kala, Tarzan's ape mother. I chose the Sultan, since his entire body was just composed of circles, and needed someone easy to animate.
My approach to this was to have the two have the relationship of the fun grandfather and energetic grandson. Hogarth loves his grandfather very much, and just slams into him. While it is routine, the Sultan is always taken by surprise when the young boy rushes into him, though he never holds it against his grandson and gently hugs him back.
