Lead Character Rigger
During production, I create rigs and adjust rigs on the many characters you see in the film. I worked on body rigs, facial rigs, prop rigs, and create pipelines tools to expedite the process. With each character we faced unique challenges.
For this film, I mainly rigged all of the props. I worked on improving and adjusting character rigs during production if there were errors or glitches throughout production. I established a method to utilize Xgen for Santa's beard that allowed us to rig it with joints.

- Ribbon spine rig in the eyes that allow it to stretch, rotate, scale, and translate in various places.
- Blendshapes to morph eyes into hearts.
