Act 3 - Rigging the Sepulchral Chamber



Act 3, enrolling Megan (a standard character from the Mixamo Asset library), draws inspiration from puppeteering and rotoscoping by rigging behaviors into objects and surfaces in ways as dynamic as modelling people.


On Character Rigging... In a story, a film, or an architectural space, a character is situational, based on a subject’s reactions in an environment or circumstance. Within this Act, the character of the environment itself is legible in fragments of relational behaviors at play within the scene.
