Markus Daum's Insane Cinematic Rigging Reel
3D Animation is very similar to puppeteering, using a pre-made rig to control the various aspects of the models while constructing their performance. Cinematic rigger Markus Daum shares with us some of his absolutely insane rigs created for various movies dating back all the way to 2006.
Having had a chance to study rigging briefly (And realizing it was totally not for me), I have incredible respect for the service they provide for animators, alleviating their job by providing them with great tools to animate with. The Hellboy II Golden Army rig takes the cake though!
