While at Janimation in July / August of 2010 I worked on some tool development for this project. Custom Synoptic view, Pose / Animation library. I'll be posting tool breakdown shortly.
Worked on a spot for Florida Times Union. We used Softimage 7.01 with the emFluid3 and emRPC plug-ins for the particles. I was responsible for the particle simulations and renders. See the spot on vimeo:
Responsible for modeling puzzle pieces, UV mapping of pieces and animation on various shots in the spot.
Rigged and modeled the base Cootie Catcher / Fortune Teller while at SpeakeasyFX.
You can take a look at a little bit of a Cootie Catcher Rig Demo:http://www.ethivierge.com/reel/Community_demo.flv
