In animation, it’s the most basic of tests, and often one of the first things you ever learn as an animator. But Tomas Jech decided to take the iconic ball bounce to the next level by turning it into a story, in a way. In this short he shows off the various physical properties that different kinds of balls—and things that aren’t exactly balls—exhibit in a “ball bounce.”
The sound in this short is also of particular note. From the sound effects to the xylophone scales that are the sound of each impact, this short is probably as immersive as a ball bounce test has ever been.
