character design, modeling, rigging, Animation

As part of the Sehsucht Berlin team, I designed some of the creatures under the direction of Mate Steinforth and modeled, rigged and animated all of them using a mixture of handmade rigs and softbody dynamics.

The Pictoplasma character festival opener tells a story around a Macy's Day parade full of twisted characters. Our creatures invade a vacant city and make it their own.
