Michael Glen: Latte?

For Michael Glen’s final project in animation and interactive media at RMIT University Australia, he developed a unique and quirky look for his short film, “Latte?

The narrative is a surreal tale of competition from the dawn of capitalism in the imagined Eastern European town of Annexia. The Borat-like pidgin English of the film’s stars and their obsession with outdated modes of “stylings” add to its weirdly charming brand of humor.

The credit sequence at the film’s conclusion gives you a little peek at the technique Michael used to create his characters.

UPDATE: Michael has put together a great motion capture tutorial using Maya and Boujou.
