More things I worked on at DreamWorks Animation from 2016 to 2018. This edition features Captain Underpants, Trolls, Kung Fu Panda, The Croods, Puss-In-Boots, and Boss Baby. (I worked on other DWA shows too but those aren't featured here.) You can watch the shows in their full glory on Netflix and Amazon Prime. This reel represents many long hours of hard work but the animation was a lot of fun to create too.
For 'Boss Baby: Back In Business', I created many of the the 2D puppet rigs which were animated by myself and five of my team mates at DWA. This was a new experience for me because I didn't previously build 2D puppet rigs for other artists to animate. This task proved surprisingly challenging because, not only did I have to anticipate new character actions from the storyboard artists, I also had to anticipate how other animators would use the rigs.
Since I was the resident 'Moho Expert' in our department, it became my unofficial job to teach the team how to use this software. The reward for me was that, in working so closely with this amazingly talented crew, I became a better animator myself.
