Mr Bean Series 3 – Tiger Aspect Productions
Advanced CelAction2D Series Character rigging, Layout - 3D Modeling, Rigging + Animation
WHAT WE DID
Mr Bean is returning for the 3rd series and so too are our rigs of the main cast of characters. This year we have taken on character rigging, scene planning and Layout along with 3D modelling, rigging and animation for 26 exciting new episodes. www.tigeraspect.co.uk
HOW WE WORK
We were given access to all the model sheets and animation from the original Series. Which we then pawed through to find out what would be needed in our rigs and techniques to be able to achieve that hand drawn style and look within CelAction2D.
WHO WE RIGGED
Mr Bean • Teddy • Mrs Wicket • Scrapper 'the cat' • Miss Wince • Irma (Mr Beans Lady friend) • The Queen • Corgi Butler • The wonderful • Fox Bruisers Dog
We originally developed a 2D rig for the Mini which looked amazing but was later replaced with a 3D setup for ease of use in the series.
These are some Initial proof of concept animation tests to demonstrate the potential speed and fluidity of our original CelAction2D rigs.
Training and Support
We went on to train and support the massive in-house team to use and adapt our base rigs for the rest of the characters in the series.
