Rigs in Action
All shots were from the short "Deep Fishing." All rigging done by myself, Jordan Hueckstaedt. Off-screen responsibilities included building and maintaining a small render farm. All other work done by Riannon Delanoy and Neil Bonsteel.
As a technical animator at Rhythm and Hues I was responsible for simulating the hair and cloth, solving character to character deformations, and fixing any deformation problems that the character rigs could not handle. I did this for all characters in numbered shots.
