Last weekend I was working on the “Baker Animation Series” from http://cgcookie.com/blender/series/baker-animation-series/ to get some more insight how to do animations with blender. I worked through through parts 1 – 5 when I got distracted of making an animation myself. But see for yourself:
The basic idea for the “plot” was to have someone flying around until he realizes that someone is watching. He then stops flying and pretends as if nothing had happened.
