This is my entry for the SideEffects Houdini cook-off. The model has been created in Modo, the shading, lighting rendering, dynamics, animation and rigging have been done in Houdini.

Nearly everything you see has been textured procedurally, this includes the scratches and rust on the ape, the rust on the background objects and the bricks. The building was textured traditionally.

Please bear in mind that I've not animated any characters in over 10 years :)

Many thanks to Gisle Martens Meyer of for giving me permission to use his awesome music, please check out his site!

Many thanks also to Mike Jagodzinski, Jamie Murray, Nicolas Pliatsikas, Dana Dorian, Andy Miller, Jack Preston, Axis Animation and the others who gave their support, feedback and advice. It was much appreciated guys!
