Animation Demo Reel 2018

August 8th, 2018

Examples of all my work done in animation throughout 2018 and before.  I hope you guys enjoy it!

Shot Breakdown:

Segment 1: Mocap (There Are No Trees Here)

In Autodesk Maya, I modeled and rigged the character, who is animated using mocap provided by Audrey Banks and Ben Scott. The scene was provided by Sophia Zhu, with buildings done by Ben Scott.

Segment 2: Girl and Monster Interaction

Storyboarded and animated the whole scene in Maya, using the Mathilda Rig (created by Leon Li-Aun Sooi and Xiong Lin) and the Tiny Rig (downloaded from user chadmv on CreativeCrash).  The pistol model was downloaded from TurboSquid, and the girl’s shaking was created using a keyframe randomizer script created by Sina Seifee.

Segment 3: Dialogue

Storyboarded the scene and wrote the dialogue with feedback from the voice actress, Aleyse Shannon.  She recorded her lines with the help of Riccardo Schulz and William Middleton.  Animated the scene using the Bonnie rig created by Josh Sobel.  I modeled the phone.
