These pieces represent some of my character work with lip sync/dialogue. They were created with the Generi model/rig by Andrew Silke and audio clips from “Young Frankenstein” and “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” in Maya. They are provided here separate from my general reel because they have audio and because they have been rendered in 720 HD.
