Manfred is an animated short that I made for my graduation project for my Bachelor of Art & Technology, as part of my 3D computer animation and visual effects studies at the Utrecht school of the Arts. Manfred is the eponymous character in a concept for an animation series of the same name. Each episode features Manfred experiencing an everyday frustration and how he deals with it. With this film I not only wanted to make a humorous character-based animation but also tried to showcase my knowledge of Maya (modeling, texturing, rigging, lighting, rendering), compositing in nuke, and my ability as a designer to bridge the gap between 2D and 3D animation design. I hope you'll enjoy the animation.
