On this project for The Ad Council, I had the great privilege to help develop (3d concept and previs) the puppets which would make up the world’s most famous Asthma rock band, The Breathe Easies. In the following animations, these characters teach us to Clean up the mold! Vacuum up the floor! and Don’t smoke in the house!
My role on this project was limited to modeling, texturing, and lighting during the character development phase. The final animations were executed by the talented folks at Buck. Check out the behind the scenes pics on Buck's site... http://www.buck.tv/work/the-breathe-easies/
