He was designed and developed to star in films, unfortunately, acting roles have dried up for kind and well meaning robots this days. He patiently waits by his phone awaiting to be called upon by his agent (designer)
I produced this animation as the final project on my first year for my automotive design course. It's a modernization/ reimagining of Thunderhawk from the popular 80s cartoon called M.A.S.K. The vehicle was modelled and animated 3ds Max and rendered using mental ray in Max. In Adobe After Effects I composited in the lens flares and confetti particles. I found the existing camera movemnt too stiff so I simulated some camera shake to give it a 'hand-held' feel.
This the first proper animation I have made after learning how to get around Adobe After Effects. While making the original Illustration, War Mongrel, I would always look at it and imagine as if it was in motion. So it was a no-brainer that this would be the first animation project I would tackle in after effects.
