Animation Test
3D Studio Max / 2009
Windows .WMV Quicktime .MOV

An animation test done as part of an application to a local game studio. The assignment was a pretty typical animation test - lift and throw a heavy object, run and get knocked down, and act to a sound clip. This type of test is purely about how a character moves; the goal is to give a realistic sense of weight, momentum, timing, even emotion and personality, all through movement. This is why there is only a skeleton without a full character attached, and no real environment, effects, lighting, etc., that would make up a full CG scene.

This was completed in one week.
