a molecular world



I’m testing some ways to rig macromolecules (such as protein and DNA). I used this great script that allows me to import protein structure into Maya. The protein I eventually would like to animate is talin. The above is just a piece of talin (available from PubMed). Because the X-ray or NMR structure of full-length talin has not been achieved, I will have to get creative and use the available truncated versions.


Short film finished for PSST! Pass It On


Takeo (the director of Le Pivot in Paris) included me in the production of his short film Alter Ego for the PSST!3 edition. I worked on modeling and UV mapping of the old lady and the drum set. I also rigged the drum set. Check out the final product HERE. Enjoy!
