Aardman “The Pirates!”

Client: Aardman Animations
Director: Peter Lord
Production: Aardman Animations – Sony Pictures Animation

Worked for 6 months on the preproduction of the last Aardman’s stop-frame feature. My task was to develop and rig the cg dups of the puppets heads, providing stop motion animators with an easy-to-use cg character rig and control UI in Maya, for them to plan the dialogs, animate the lipsync and eventually generate the actual mouths replacements through a rapid prototyping system (3d printers).
