This is the HD version of the Carmin Cares book trailer. (The official Pumpkinheads version with thousands of Likes and comments is here.)
This is my demo reel of 3D and 2D animation and 3D crowds simulation.
Demo Reel Breakdown (also viewable in .pdf format)
3D Animation (00:07 to 00:32)
2D Animation (00:32 to 00:49)
Hand-drawn animation was done in time to music composed by Pete Masitti. All animation and background artwork was done by me.
Feature Film Crowds Simulation (01:02 to 01:23)
I ran the crowds simulation that generated the random variations in action and appearance of the terra cotta warriors, based on existing motion-captured cycles. I also did rough keying and matting of the composited images.
