BackJoy Animation

Posted by – March 13, 2010

I completed this animation back in 2009. Its kind of cheasy but it looks cool. Overall it was a difficult animation to complete. I had to skin a body, a muscle system, and a skeleton to one rig for animation. I then rendered each one seperatly and comped them in After Effects. I was very pleased with the end results and the client was happy too.

Hunter Air Purifier Animation

Posted by – March 13, 2010

Hunter the fan company needed an animation to showcase their new top of the line air purifier. The goal was to show how the air purifier can destroy airborne bacteria, mold, and even dust mites. The challenge with this animation was the amount of particles I had to create. I think there was over 10000 particles. I turned out pretty well and the Hunter company was very pleased.

Pill Animation

Posted by – March 13, 2010

This was an animation I did while working at Argosy Medical. The water in the animation is actually a box being pushed through an FFD or a Lattice. The box was then turbo smoothed to smooth out the edges. I hand animated the pill bobbing up in down on the surface of the box. I then applied Mental Ray materials to create the look of water and the esophagus.
