In essence, we can state much of Web usability as: answer customers' questions, get to the point, and take it easy on the bells and whistles. If only we could get websites to stop annoying users, much would be gained.

Last semester in my Communications Technology class I had to make a final project using 3D animation. I had big ideas on what I would do with my animation, and all looked like it was going well. I got the first few scenes rendered fine, and they looked OK, but I noticed the due date was quickly approaching. Due to the lack of time I realized that I needed to cut down on things that would take a while, such as animating the caracters walking. Around the last few days I finally got all the scenes rendered and was about to put them together into one big movie when I noticed that some of the scenes were missing. Panicking. I drew up a few quick images in Paintbrush to replace the missing scenes with. Then I noticed that I hadn't recorded voices, so I quickly got me and a friend into the recording room and recorded the script. I put it all together and realized that it wasn't very good and wasn't very interesting to watch. Out of desparation to make it semi-watchable I knew I needed some background music. I talked to my friend and it happened that he had the Pulp Fiction soundtrack with him, so I used that for some background music.

After everything was ready, I put it all together with Adobe Premier, but there was a minute or so of blank screen before the actual music started. I handed it in, got a mark of 85% and forgot to get the hard copy back from my teacher. This morning my teacher came into my home room to talk to another student and I took this opportunity to ask if I could get it back.

Sometime this week, when i figure out a way to upload the 80 meg file using my puny little 33.6k modem, you too can laugh at it, and me. I know not many people will want to see it, but it is good for a laugh or too, and some of the scenes are done fairly well. It should be available for download sometime soon, but I'm not sure when...

Anyhoo, comments anyone?

I am Sam!
