Fart Bot



A short bit that I contributed to here at the studio was "FrontPaged" on the CG Talk forum.

We had 10 sec to show how a robot would pass gas. Trouser Trumpets are universal humor. Name one heathly person who doesn't toot. While some poo-poo the excessive use of barking spider humor in animation, I don't mind it in short bursts.

Hey! I was wondering what you were up to these days. I actually saw this animation on CGTalk yesterday. Very cool. It's great to see some of what you're working on out there. Nice puns by the way :)

Congrats on the front page! I love the design, Chad. Nice job. He really is an old fart.

Nice job Chad... your stuff looks great. To answer your question, yes I did graduate, and I work at Sensory Sweep with Peter Anderson as a animator and character designer. So Bishop Animation made you do a fart joke huh... That's to bad... the animation looks great though. Go Cougars...

Congratulations!
The worried expression on his face just before the 'explosion' is fabulous. His walk cycle is great too. Very cranky, as an old bot should be. Nicely done Chad. Keep up the great work, and let us know if you get any more air time.

I wish I could take credit for the animation, another fellow, Kevin Wisdom, here at the studio did that. I did the design, comp, and foley/sound
