Animated Inspiration: Tezcatlipoca

Here's another film about felines. This time, it's from college student Robin L. George, who created this film as an homage to Fantasia's Night on Bald Mountain.

According to Robin's website, the Jaguar is 'animated', however I'm not sure if that means its motion is keyframed or motion captured off of a real animal. Either way, the motion is incredibly fluid and realistic. Given what I saw on Robin's demo reel, I'm leaning towards keyframed animation. The editing, modeling, animation and timing in this films is indicative of a student who is dedicated to mastering their craft. I'm definitely putting Robin on my 'one to watch' list.
