Cat Nap - Mocap Thesis Animation

A version with sound:

A version with some color:

Cat Nap is my MFA thesis animation work in progress. The body animation is motion capture data I captured with an IQ system, cleaned, retargeted in MotionBuilder onto my digital characters, counter-animated, and brought into Maya for facial, hand, and prop animation as well as any additional animation cleanup.

This is a solo project where I created the story, and modeled, rigged, textured all the assets.  Though I did use a friend to put on the motion capture suit and play the boy and the cat.
