The Stray Dog

A shortfilm I made together with Irina Moroz in my seventh semester of media design at the university of applied sciences and arts Hanover, Germany.

It's about a living wizard puppet which makes a lot of trouble in a kitchen. Our goal was to get our shader and lighting as realistic as possible and to test out our animation pipeline for upcoming projects.

I was responsible for the character design, modeling, texturing, shading and rigging as well as the simulations and the pipeline development.
