Some choice cuts from a series of safety videos.
All illustration, design, rigging, animation done by me.
This was both a fun and trying project, which gave me a lot of design freedom, while being equally restrictive from a workplace safety perspective.
The client wanted 'Toilet sign' people, and we showed them a few ideas before landing on a slightly more detailed version of a stick figure which wouldn't look out of place wearing the correct PPE. I came up with a relatively straightforward rig for these characters using Rubber Hose for the limbs and time-remapping sliders to give the bodies and heads some side-to-side rotation. I also designed a simpler version of the workers which I could use in the backgrounds to give the factory a feeling of busyness.
