Flame On

We've had to do a lot of "effects" or dynamics animation for the Buddha documentary.

Many of it is stylized, such as this sequence in which water and flame shoot from every part of the enlightened Siddhartha as he walks a jeweled path in the sky.

Here's an early pencil test of the "shooting".

Christina Riley did the animation.

A few of the scenes were dropped. The close of the nostrils, for one, we felt was a little too snot-like.

Great. Now all I can think of is Buddha as voiced by Bill Murray.
