Here are some stills of the 20 animations I did for This is Progress. Each animation was designed for the wrestlers entrances and are only about 12 seconds long. I wanted to make each one as different as I could. Luckily the wrestlers either have their own theme or I could draw inspiration from their name or nickname.
I enjoyed making all of them, ones that stand out for me are – Eddie Dennis because I animated a dragon using the puppet tool, Mark Andrews because of the jet fly-by and putting “White Lightning” on the jet, Swords of Essex for modeling the swords in 3ds max, and Noam Dar because I think the final look turned out better than I thought it would.
Plugins that I used were Element 3D, Trapcode Particular, Shine, and Starglow, and Optical Flares.
