Watch above (6MB) or watch it at any of these sites:
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 er...you may want to adjust your volume..loud Tingle is louuuud.)
