I was Animator working on WWE 2020. There are a lot of awesome characters using a lot of big-contact interactions with other characters. I am creating high-impact animations that highlight Superstars and their signature moves. I’m using MotionBuilder and working with motion-capture data to fine-tune the moves to feel as hard hitting as the “real thing”.
I also worked as a MoCap Specialist for NBA. I worked on multiple parts of the animation pipeline in the Mocap Studio. I processed data to create hi-quality animated characters, cameras and props.
