Blackbird rig for Flipbook animation project

21.7.2017

rig-it.net recently finished work on blackbird rig for Flipbook animation project. Here is complete commercial: https://vimeo.com/217412952 Here is what Flipbook says about the ad: "We designed and animated a series of high-end creatures from British wildlife for the project, a first for RSPB. Each creature had to comply with specific guidelines to ensure they perfectly represented the species native to England. The TVC is comprised of a mixture of 2D and 3D CGI, but also incorporates live action footage provided by RSPB. A selection of highly detailed CGI models had to be animated realistically so that the difference between actual wildlife in the film footage and the CG wildlife was nominal."

We have opened our first RIGIT office from February. This is the next step to provide even better service for our customers and growing our business. We also run production for our second service Polygonbay. Therefore the two logos in the image. The office is situated in historical neighbourhood which adds to the great atmosphere in that place. Currently we have crew combined from production and 3d render artists who prepare new images for our Polygonbay eshop. Already few weeks after it is clear that going for an office was one of the best decisions for the company. Better communication helps to manage the projects from these new headquarters and helps to build the core team.
