Paranorman – NK production for Laika

During July 2012, I had the fun opportunity to work with North Kingdom on Laika’s interactive site ParaNorman Stop-Motion Lab, promoting their new feature film ParaNorman.
The idea was to setup an online animation tool, just like a stop motion scene, where the user was allowed to animate their own zombie and share the result on YouTube.
My work consisted of modeling, remodeling, texturing and rigging work on most of the zombies, of which some already had the hi-poly version provided by Laika themselves.
I also worked on some of the scenery with modeling, lighting and texture baking.

The production was a fun challenge, and we had some great help from Frostware with the final tweaks in Unity 3D.
