I took this animation challenge (make animation for given 11 seconds long sound file in a month) for creating some portfolio material, and test Dynamixyz facial motion capture software tools.
This project took around three weeks for me to complete.
I acted the parts for Twitchy (squirrel) and my friend, Roderick Kabanga did Jimbo (the boy character).
I'm not fluent with rendering in Maya. I just did the bare minimum for playblasting the scenes somewhat prettier than gray Lambert material characters in editor scene lighting.
My main focus in this project was to practice key animating and learn Dynamixyz tools.
Assets in Jimbo scene are from various Unreal Engine marketplace packs.
