Animation has weaved its way in and out of my career. It has been a cornerstone of my skillset and something that I have always enjoyed. All of my experience in college was with key frame or hand drawn animation. Then, after being hired as an Unreal Cinematic Artist, I worked my way into a Mocap Animator Position at Pendulum Studios.
I ended up spending the majority of my time at Pendulum working on Data Cleanup, Retargetting, Blending Mocap Takes, Fixing Motion, Finger/Facial Key Framing.
Following that, my time at Epic was spent honing my skills with Animation Systems and Cinematic Tools. A good bit of rigging came with the territory as well.

We were in charge of all of the cleanup and animation for the Cinematics. My main assignment was the opening cinematic(below).

iYoga is a mobile app that acts as an encyclopedia for Yoga poses and the muscles that they target. We were responsible for everything from the Mocap to the Rendering. The video below simply demonstrates some of the finished renders.

With the exception of the M4 Reload, all of the following is mocap cleanup. If any additional description was required, it’ll be shown in the video itself
This is a brand new rig (as of May 2014) that I have created simply for prototyping purposes. More functionality will be added as needed(finger, toe, facial controls). Some basic gameplay animations will be made as well.
Note: I did not capture painting weights
