Here are the notes on each shot of my 2020 highlight reel. This list will detail exactly which aspects of the showcased works I was or was not responsible for.

Layout, camera animation, post-processing, compositing, and lighting are always done by myself.

(It's just an intro shot.)

All animation is mixing existing clips together.

True Sight 2019: Environment tweaks, lighting, and particle FX tweaked by myself. Ember Spirit and Monkey King animation by myself, the other three characters are using their standard existing run-cycle. More details about this project here.

True Sight 2019: Same as last shot.

True Sight 2019: Same as last shot. Templar Assassin's animation is half hand-keyed and half mocap.

True Sight 2019: Ember Spirit animation by myself. Templar Assassin's running animation used mocap as a starting point. I hand-keyed the fall and beyond. I also had to heavily tweak FX.

True Sight 2019: Background characters mix existing clips and bespoke hand-keyed animation. The front characters are entirely keyframed by myself, from the moment Tiny curls up into a ball to shove Rubick forwards. More details about this project here. (It's still from the same movie.)

True Sight 2019: Rubick's animation by myself, used a simple existing "flail" clip as a base which was heavily animated over. Many environment changes, particle FX tweaks, and atmospheric FX by myself.
