Mc 34: Me Ol'Bamboo

Hello again,

This month's challenge is inspired by one of my favourite scenes from the film, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Hapless inventor Caractacus Potts is running for his dear life, when he finds himself amongst a group of merry dancers! If you haven't seen the film, I won't say no more except watch it!!

The lyrics from the song are as follows: 

A gentleman's got a walking stick.
A seaman's got a gaff.
And the merry men of Robin Hood
They used a quarterstaff.
On the Spanish plains inside their canes
They hide their ruddy swords.
But we make do with an old bam-boo
And everyone applauds!

The challenge is to show a character interacting with a bamboo stick. He could be fishing, dancing, fighting, the choices are up to you. As inspiration, I wish to show you a scene of Rafiki from Lion King fighting. Yes, I know he is not using a stick made from bamboo, but hopefully it'll give you a few ideas.

I'm also a huge fan of this 11 second Club entry by David Alvarez http://www.11secondclub.com/competition … try/MSeGGb

It'd be nice to see a variety of ideas, so we not limit the size of the stick. You may wish to research different cultures to see what bamboo can be used for. Please note, in tribute to those who are taking part in the Mc 33: Track and Field, no Olympic style pole vaults are allowed. Just use your imagination and see what you come up with.

As always the animation could be anywhere between 75-125 frames. If you have any questions about submission requirements, please check How-to-participate section for more details. The deadline will be Monday 1st September 2012. Good luck and happy animating!

Got a crazy September ahead of me, so I'll have to pass this time. Sounds fun, though.
