RabRab's only purpose in life is to look after his empty room, clearing away any dust that builds up. His mortal enemy is the Tingle, an annoying creature that bounces around and makes horrid noises. Watch as the Rabrab desperately attempts to get rid of an evading Tingle with his trusty hammer.

Made for a Uni project which was simply "make an animation with 2D and 3D in it, that involves a entity interacting with their environment". I decided to expand on an idea I had for the Tea N Crumpets website, featuring a Tingle (those creatures that bounce around the loading screens of the site) and a re-design of RabRab (If you look at the Intro/News page you'll see the old RabRab running about, complete with arms and teeth and yes, that is 'MOO' written on his hammer for some reason).

The 3D is pretty glitchy in places, because I'm pretty new to using 3D software, especially Maya of which I've literally just started using with this film. I hid and Photoshopped over a lot of really nasty glitches, though.

Took about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks to animate in the end. Enjoy~
(Oh and may want to adjust your volume..loud Tingle is louuuud.)

EDIT: Oops, in the credits I forgot to mention where the light bulb footage came from: [link]

Nice job. My only complaint is that the flash-produced animation didn't seem really fluid, it really seemed kind of stale in some cases. The stuff you did in Maya seemed fine enough but could use some color though. But still nice job.

That'll be because I really wanted to get this done as quick as possible, so some parts are rather rushed, with a lot of re-used animation and some moments that could of done with more frames. It still took 2 weeks longer than I wanted though =E

Hah that was pretty shway awsome man :) although Im not a fan of how some cartoons attempt to combine 2D with 3D this actually did look pretty top notch :) and the character as always were creative as funk :D Loved how that Bunny dude clapped with his feet seeing as he's got like Invisible hands :) and was their a glimpse of you on the toilet on that Television screen? :lmao: ah that was funky :nod: ah its nice too see some uber nice animation like this, its a great treat :D

Can't get enough of your animations. Hilarious and orginal. And this one is no different. I like the 3D too.
