This is an animation excersize I did for my character animation class. We had 100 frames to show someone answering the phone in an interesting way. I was inspired by an old comedy skit by Firesign Theater. I used the "Norman" rig, but I modified the head and modeled his clothes. I modeled, lit and rendered the set for my Maya class. It was completed in Maya, rendered with Mental Ray, and composited in Fusion.
