Collar Animation
show user profile  Splinterbas

I need some tips/help with making an animation for a certain project:

There is this new product.
It's a collar that can be given to cats to help against flea's, worms, tics etc.
Innovative product bla bla bla.

A video will be made as a preroll on youtube.
In this video will be a 5 sec animation where you see the collar scare away pests.
What I was wondering is how I can pull this thing off?

Should I model the collar and use bones or something?
I'm not the best with animation.
There's a link underneath with an abstract sketch of how it roughly should be

Much appreciated!

Your question sounds a lot more like what to do instead of how to do it.
Come up with some storyboard or at least a clear idea about your animation and you'll get plenty of help.
