The Final Battle of Ramayana

This is the final battle of the epic Hindu tale of the Ramayana in under 2 minutes! Our task was to model chess pieces and tell a story in 90 seconds or less. Our team took on the challenge of not only completely reimagining their chess board and pieces, but also the feat of creating this final epic battle in such a short time.

As the team's rigger, I created rigs for all of the detailed models with limbs. This allowed us to animate arms and hands with ease. I was also the team's lead animator, tasked with animating the second half of this project.
