New animation test

After the term 4 I went for my vacation, which is a month. Had a great time with my childhood friends and my family. It was hot in Assam, rained a bit.
I have started a new animation test after I came back ( 12/05/2007). The story is about a frustrated teacher and a knotty kid ( funny I guess ). Still working out the blocking. Hope to post the blocking ASAP.

Also thinking a lot a about my shot a lot ( AM term 5 ) hope fully will will get some OK ideas before class starts ( 02/07/2007)
