This is the latest commercial I worked on at MPC. I animated the first two shots you see Godzilla in and the second to last were he lands on the ground and spits out the car. Also blocked in the areal shots of Godzilla. This was fun but fast. Once we had all the footage and set ups done we had only two weeks to do all of the animation with a crew of 2 to 3 for most of it and only 2 of those days to do the polish pass and animate the jiggles and body fat. Half the time we spent on file handling and exports. Fortunately for some of the other shots the crew had a good starting point from some of the movie animation files (walk cycle and roar). Godzilla isn't just big on film, his rig would also take 10 to 15min to load in a maya scene. Below is a making of featuret with the full comercial at the end. Enjoy.
