Virtual Production – Lion King

Virtual Production on the Lion King!

 

Our team was in charge of creating the VR world of the Lion King for Jon Favreau, Andy Jones, Caleb Deschanel, Rob Legato and several others to use for a virtual camera setup and getting their shots laid out.

 

My specific duties involved:

  • animation
  • rigging (as well as optimizing the rigs for VR)
  • writing of tools (MEL and Python)
  • some transitioning from Maya to Unity
