Canada,  Montreal Concordia University,  Film Animation,  December 18, 2014

I'm a recently graduated student from Film Animation at Concordia and I'm submitting my graduation film "The Custody". For me, this film was the perfect way to combine both traditional technique with state of the art modern technology. Inspired by studios like Laika (Coraline, Paranorman, Boxtroll), last year I undertook the great task of creating a piece of Stop Motion using CG generated faces for my character. The whole skull part of this character was created using Maya and Mudbox, then sent to a 3D Printer and used as replacement pieces for frame by frame animation.
