Any ideas for an animation that you're willing to share?

Post here!

Here's mine

Rain: First scene is a long shot of the sky with dark clouds and maybe a bit of lightning for extra drama. The next scene shows the inside of a cloud only the inside looks like the inside of a helicopter or something, and they are some raindrops in there, sitting down or walking about. A red light is flashing then it changes to green, the raindrops go over to the door and open it. Third scene shows a cloud and a load of doors with other raindrops jumping out (the idea being that the second scene was showing one room out of lots inside a single cloud). 4th scene is a close up of a door and a raindrop is about to jump out, maybe he's a little bit scared or something. The raindrop jumps.

Dramatic music starts. 5th scene is a 3d angle of the raindrop falling toward the camera. The screen then shows the raindrop's face and he pulls out a little kamikaze headband and puts it on. Camera pans to a new angle that looks up toward the clouds with the raindrop in view and you see loads of other raindrops falling behind him, quite far away. The camera cuts to being able to see the whole raindrop and quite a lot of screen around him. Then some other raindrops appear in the background and you see them being destroyed by hitting into things (birds, bugs, plane?). The raindrop is now going so fast he starts to break up. He shuts his eyes and a tear escapes from the corner of one of them. Buildings and things are visible on the ground at this point. Cut the music to something calm, quiet, cut the scene to a puddle on the floor and the raindrop lands in the puddle and makes a small splash. Slowly zoom out as the rain gets heavier and run any necessary credits.

You don't have to post anything big like that, you can just suggest something like 0 gravity animation, pogo stick, or something like that..

Zero G animation about a guy with only a pogo stick who hops around from asteroid to asteroid and then something happens like the gravity is too strong and gets forced down to a planet and because the gravity is too much he cant jump anymore so he ends up just offing himself. Or he could like accidently jump into a black hole and experience spaghettification, I think that would be really cool

Guy in big mech suit vs army of tanks. He beats the crap outta every single one, kickin' em over into each other, tearing off the turrets, firing the shell then using it as a melee weapon, etc. Just smashin' them all with his big robot fists, each other and maybe a rocket pod or two. Then, at the end, there's the big bad boss tank. After a little bit of fighting, bam, big boss tank transforms. Then the fight begins.

Animate something to do with consciousness. You can make it a character switching animation or something like astral projection. It may need to be animated in first person but it would be pretty cool.

Animate someone dreaming of himself falling into so many portals, and each portal has a different theme. For example: As soon as he falls into the 1st portal, he falls into hell, the the second portal is heaven, then the second portal is the sky..etc. In the end he falls into his bed and wakes up.

How violent.

Something I find cool are mash-up animations. I'm currently working on one now, but I'm telling nobody what it is (cheesy grin
Take a game you like. Such as... Stick wars, or Sonic or whatever and pivotise it.

-Merged.
Watch the double posts man.

Animate a stickman with a little fuse stuck in his head, someone light it on, and get your explosion pack ready.

I've already tried once, but it failed miserably. Mind you, that was when I was still a beginner. I might try it again some time.

Here's an idea: Try that again. Because that is an extremely original idea and very clever.

Wow Tuna that is amazing! I have two ideas I'd love to see done, one I should be capable of but the other I'd like more done to it then what id put in.

1. It's your kids birthday so you blind for him and hand him a bat (for a piniata). You then walk inside (reason uknown at the momen) as your son not knowing whats in front of him starts swinging and ends up beating an animal up that was tied to a tree... (sounds sadistic now)

2. Why kids really have teddy bears.
Starts off with a little boy saying goodnight to his family and then going to bed, as he gets in bed and falls asleep a giant monster appears from underneath his bed to attack him. Luckily for him his trusty Teddy is there to protect him wielding his sword and shield the bear jumps into action protecting the child and a massive fight breaks out between the monster an bear :D
