The power of the rig: creativity over complexity

Paolo Acampora

Saturday 28 October Theater 30

Character rigging is seen as an overcomplicated, tyresome task, prone to become an obstacle to the artist expression or a necessary evil we have just to live with

can we make it easier, likeable, quick and at the same time even more effective? The talk will encompass our experience with Animation, VFX and Games, as well as the current state of the rigify addon and its future developement, with an eye for a generic approach and the design challenges which are found on the path to the character animation

Speakers: Paolo Acampora: Freelance CG developer and former Character Rigger (MPC London, Mad Naples) Ivan Cappiello: Director at Mad Lucio Rossi: Current developer for rigify
