Koro is getting a new rig!

Koro, our main character, is getting brand new rigging!

Rigging is what makes 3D models move and appear alive. Juan Pablo Bouza made BlenRig time ago, a super configurable biped rig. Now he’s taking it to another level to make it a fully featured quadruped rig, with special little things we need to push the cartoon side on this movie.

We really want Caminandes: Episode 2 (codenamed project Pampa by us :) to be very cartoon, much more than the first one. So having a crazy rig like this will allow us plenty of weird shapes and expressions that we couldn’t make before. Can’t wait to see what Hjalti can do with it!

Here we had our first meeting with Juan Pablo (he’s in Argentina)

I couldn’t help to walk around and record some bits.

It’s been a super productive first day of production here at the Blender Institute, and we still have two more weeks to go. /me smiles

Please keep spreading the word and don’t forget to follow the project on Facebook! We’re constantly updating it and tweeting about it, join the party!
