This is a short animation with focus on lip syncing which is matching character animation to a sound clip. This is normally the process in 3d animated films. An actor or actress records the voice acting and animators use the voice to guide the character animation.
I used Maya to build the environment, texture the scene, texture the character, light the scene, animate the character, composite the render layers, edit the sound and edit the video. Special thanks to my friend Israel Woolfolk who helped with lighting and critique.
Tools: Maya, Photoshop, After Effects, Mental Ray
