This is a custom logo animation for the production company Three Little Birds.
The client provided a character design for their logo and from this still I modeled, textured, rigged and animated their characters. During the animation process I provide work in progress animation clips so the client can respond with notes. The process when working with a client can be very iterative and fluid as the initial animation direction will often evolve during the process.
Below is a screen grab from the animation layout process where you can see all the animation controls required for each character. Mouse over the image to see a frame rendered with LightWave's VPR. You will notice that the bird's wings intersect through the body. This was rectified during the compositing stage by layering the render pass of the wings over the body layer.
