Description: Description: “Two Men on a Bench” is a CGI 3D animated short film (HD) about two men, Walter and Bernie, sitting on a bench at the park. Bernie tells a joke to Walter but gets no reaction. Afterwards, Walter tells Bernie a joke but Bernie doesn’t understand the humor and gets frustrated. Comedy (2018) (USA) (2.7m). Background Story: I heard the film’s “dentist walks into a bar” joke one day while I was waiting at the doctor’s office. There were two senior men sitting in the row of seats behind me. One man told the joke to the other man who didn’t understand it. The situation was so clever I wanted to capture it in this short film. I added the knock-knock joke as a counterbalance to the first joke. I never turned to see what the two men looked like that day. I was afraid if I turned around they would know I was eavesdropping on them and be mad at me. The two men in this short film were designed with Character Creator to fit the cast description. Production: The 3D animation was made with iClone 7 (Reallusion), Motion LIVE (Faceware Realtime) and Kinect Mocap. Character Creator 2 (Reallusion) was used to create custom puppets for the animation. The park was built in iClone with Terrain and Speedtree. Assets were purchased from Reallusion’s Content Store and Content Marketplace. The popcorn was purchased from Free3D (Popcorn 3d model by IBBM Design). The popcorn cup was obtained from 3dsky (PopCorn by regiclick) and dog collar from cgtrader (collar for Marussia by 888).
