totoro busts a move

I walked outside yesterday, and there happened to be a strange bear setting up some cardboard flat on the ground in front of my house. Then, this bear (he told me his name was totoro) started to do the running man dance on top of the cardboard. I had to get this on video, so I went inside, got my camera, and this is what I saw.

As you can see in the short clip, he's got pretty good dance moves, so don't be scared if you see a dancing bear outside your home.

(P.S. This was created for a camera matching / tracking assignment).

That is so good. I love it. Great camera tracking and compositing!

Way to go above and beyond Marcelo! The track looks great! Is the angle right for some reflections in the car? That would be awesome!

I didn't think about adding the car reflections, I'll have to try that next time. It's really cool what you can do with compositing. I want to put a huge totoro destroying downtown next haha.

By the way, this Tortoro character is starting to grow on me.

Marcelo Meijome said...

haha thanks!

my totoro character is a little bit different than the on in the movie. You should check out the totoro movie and the other studio ghibli movies if you have never seen them though. Really good stuff.
