Milkdrop commercials

Singing, dancing, Spanish-language commercials, featuring Mr. Milkdrop, a happy-go-lucky mariachi. I assisted the director Steve Martino with character visual development, doing sketches and pose sheets from his design.



In 3D I helped to rig the model with Orie Hegre and the Click3x LA team, and did the character development test animations in Softimage. We wanted to make the character look flexible, liquidy, and free-form on a fast commercial schedule, without the extra time of building blend-shape models. So a shape-it-as-you-go rig was built. We then animated the shots, comped and edited them into the live action. These are all my shots.
