This is my final project for my 3D class. It's a lip sync :)

To those who know where the audio clip is from: Sir David Attenborough :heart: Life of Birds :love:

To those who don't, it's from here (alternate link here)
I recommend renting the entire series, as well as watching as many of Sir David Attenborough's other documentaries as possible. You won't regret it.


My classmates all took clips from movies and TV shows, but I took a clip from a nature documentary, because I'm a nerd like that :B And c'mon, falling seabirds!

My instructor liked it a lot.
Truthfully, he really liked all of the animations that I turned in, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't kick some butt in that class.



Animated in Maya 2013.
Norman rig provided by instructor; I just gave him eyebrows and hair.
Petrel (falling birds) modeled, rigged, and animated by me.
Audio belongs to BBC.

Cool! Nice audio too. I think it would be cool if you made the poses more asymmetrical, and added some more overlap and follow-through.

Heh, the guy looks like Woody from Toy Story. But honestly, I can see why your instructor likes your work.
