Almost 6 years of WILDSTAR Animation & Rigging

So I've been working on WildStar for just about 6 years now.  Here is a small sampling of some of the animation and rigging I've had the good fortune to work on.

WILDSTAR Animation Reel 2014

WILDSTAR Rigging Reel 2014

Also put together a sort of "breakdown" of the special projects I've taken on within the development of WILDSTAR over the years.  (The sort of "outside normal rigging and animation of characters/props" stuff that's hard to put in a reel.)

Adventures Epic Drop - with the Caretaker

New Wildstar Flick announcing Adventures.  The Caretaker is probably my favorite character in the game, so doing a video from his perspective was irresistible...  Here's the landing page.  My main contribution was the 2D animation that appears on his screen.

Classes "Ultra Drop"

Weee, finally got to dive back into character animation on this one.  And what a character.  I feel as though I haven't seen the last of Ish'mael the Bloodied...  Here's the landing page.

Chua/Mordesh Reveal

Latest Wildstar Flick, Chua/Mordesh...  Here's the landing page.

Paths Epic Drop

Well, I'm a couple videos behind... Let's get caught up here.  Couple months ago my team put out a double feature to highlight Paths in Wildstar.  A new marketing cinematic, which we're now calling Wildstar Flicks, and a DevSpeak.  Worked on both.  Mostly the DevSpeak, but also storyboards, animatic, setup, and management type stuff for the Flick.  Oh, and I animated a flower...  Here's the landing page.

DevSpeak Gameplay Videos

Not the usual animation work, but I recently made two gameplay videos for Wildstar.  Special thanks to Max and Marc Matzenbacher, Chris Hanel, Stephan Frost, and Greg Meader for significant contributions.  Hiring up a team to help create more DevSpeaks at a fast pace.  Lots of gameplay features to discuss in Wildstar!  Here's the landing page.

Meet the Exiles

Number three baby, Meet the Exiles.  Got some incredible new animators on board to work on this.  Main narrator was animated by Kishore Vijay, and all the other characters by Jarrod Showers.  I did the 2D animation, and some other things.  Super fun, and thanks to all the folks at Carbine who helped out!
