The students of Cogswell Polytechnical college have released a pair of human character rigs free of charge, that I used in one of my latest animations. After the problems with the August 11secondclub competition animation file, I decided to go back into the website's archive and find a different audio clip to animate. I picked a clip featuring two characters from the Netflix series, Master of None. Once I knew which rigs I was going to use, I looked around CGTrader.com and Turbosquid for a few props and constructed a bare-bones set piece. Then I went about creating poses and selection sets for both characters in Studio Library.
With those tasks completed, I tackled lip syncing, then animating the larger body actions, including working with some constraints to get one of the characters to adjust a video camera in the scene, as well as hold -and then set down- a pen.
And finally, the end result...
