This reel is a compilation of my Game animation work both (Keyframe and Motion capture) and personal animation study work.
All the characters are animated by me using hand key animation in Maya. All the animations are key framed except for the ones mentioned as motion captured.
The opening shot of the owl flying towards the camera is from the game Harry Potter for kinect. This is the opening cutscene for the game and I am responsible for both the camera and owl animation. The animation is keyframed and based on reference videos.
