Partnering with Atlanta-based agency Ames Scullin O'Haire, we directed and animated a broadcast commercial and web video featuring a family of 3D animated penguins that have become mascots for the aquarium.

The Process

3D character animation is all about process. We start with low-res, greyscale animations and then progressively get more advanced as we move through the production, eventually rendering out compositions with depth of field, compositing elements, color-grade, motion blur, etc.

Getting a Closer Look


In addition to the broadcast spots, we also created a series of digital shorts for ASO that allowed the rest of the Waddlesworth family to have their say! Each one has their own unique personality and we had a blast bringing them to life.

"This was a chance to let us really flex our character animation muscles, a process that always gives us a lot of satisfaction."

There are so many little details to these renders. Eye reflections, pools of water under their feet, we considered every detail we could within the project scope.

We're always trying to push our looks forward. And drive our render times down.
