My old demo reel, just in case...

I'm currently putting together a new showreel but, in the meantime, why not sticking here the old one?
Hope you like it!

Scarecrow animation by Ravi Kamble

This is a nice and subtle animation featuring one the character rigs I did for Ben Rush's film "Lucy". Great work Ravi!

You can find more details about the project checking out the production blog at

I will prepare a video demo showing how this rig works. Hopefully it'll be posted soon!

Birdseye "Super Crunch"

The last rigging work I did for my colleagues at Vando (
Nice character design but also quite a challenge as we needed to rig several characters in a short period of time for this commercial produced by XYZ and directed by Tim Kentley.

Aardman's "Twistmas" for Family Channel

These are the last characters I had the chance to rig for "Twistmas", a series of TV stings for Family Channel created these last Christmas by Aardman Animations.

Directed by Darren Dubicki and animated by Mat Rees, it's been once more really good fun to rig these kind of characters and, most of all, to work again with my old Bristolian friends!

Anomalia 2011 Rigging Course

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to spent two weeks in the Czech Republic giving a Rigging Masterclass. It was part of the Anomalia professional training courses which take place at the European Training Center in Litomysl, a beautiful Bohemian town close to Prague.

Once again, it's been a great experience to share with the students (actually professionals of the field most of them) our ideas, techniques and also a good knowledge about all types of czech beer brands, thanks to the local guys!

Sooo, I'll be looking forward to going back to Litomysl in the future for the next course. Thanks a lot to David Tousek for all his effort on organising the courses and counting on me for the rigging masterclass. And thank you so much to all the students for being so enthusiastic and for their patience!

ps. And thanks to Vasilis for this self-explanatory drawing, a great advertisement for future students. Plok!

Cow rig for Aardman's "Moo"

Recently finished this character rig for a new Aardman's commercial, created for Colman's new instant beef gravy. Directed by Bobby Proctor, and nicely animated by the great Mathew Rees.

It's been interesting to deal with the biped-quadruped rig issue. As usual, we used two different rigs, but in this case even two different models were created and rigged for each version.

Check out the final animation here, hope you like it!
