Animation Technical Assistant, DreamWorks Feature Animation 2024

I worked on Kung Fu Panda 4 as an Animation Technical Assistant.  It was so fun getting to work on such a long running series!

As an Animation Technical Assistant, I worked with the animation and rigging departments' dev teams to develop and quality control the character and prop rigs before animation production started.  I animated cycles, performance tests to test the rigs and explore the shape language of new characters, and department-specific animation tests to be used for Lookdev and CFX testing.  I created and populated animation pose libraries and provided documentation to the team about how to use the rigs and best animation practices.  I also filled other various technical support roles for the animation team as needed, including general troubleshooting and shot setup within the pipeline.
