Hiball collective//robots

3d modelling, Animation 2013

Project done with my friends over at Township&co. They called me in to build, design and model the Robot Arm characters for the spot, which helped influence the aesthetic for the set. Developed from concept sketches, they took on a life of their own (literally), and were built for two purposes, the claw type gripping arm, and the hammer-head type processing arm.

Motion test for range of motion and modelled constraints.
