Idiot Box popped into my head one day during a long walk. A tv set with a bunch of little crab legs scurrying along. I just thought the idea was so cute I went ahead and made him in Maya.
Later, when I found out I would have a class project using Boujou to track camera motion and composite 3d into live footage, I knew my little Idiot Box had to star in it.
The best part was getting to walk around the school and shout at something that wasn't even there. I wonder what people thought I was doing . . .
"Yeah, that Ryan guy's gone crazy. I knew it had to happen eventually . . ."
Idiot Box is up for voting on Patch Together. Show some interest and they might make a toy out of him! http://patchtogether.com/designs/designs/view/id/1406
