Personal project: "Dancing Mr.J" - Stylized Facial anatomy performance
© 2020 by Shraga Weiss
With "Mr. J" I explore stylized facial anatomy of a music hero of mine. Mick Jagger.
The challenge was to create an animated short from start to finish utilizing an original facial animation pipeline exploring the facial deformation of a stylized character.
The project included all the elements of a major studio project from character design to modeling, original facial rigging, animation, hair grooming & simulation, lighting etc. and was rendered using cloud rendering.
I was in charge of all the elements of the project besides the animation (modeling, rigging, grooming, simming etc).
Animation was done by my very talented friend and collaboratoe, Roy Margalit. (www.roymargalit.com)
I would like to also thank Brett Sinclair, Gustav Ahren and Elyse Wei who helped advise me on some crucial elements of the project.
