Houdini Animation test for the short film 'MONSTRO!' by Christopher Romano.
After getting a working body rig, and developing and improving the face rig system, I went ahead and did a full body + dialogue test to see how well the character would hold up when acting.
The rig is pretty limited, so this test was more to see how far I could push it, and to explore ways to get some more traditional animation concepts in there. The goal was to make it convincing despite the limitations.
The audio is from 'Ghostbusters.'
