Wadu Matyidi was a project created with the South Australian Film Corporation designed to showcase the Adnyamathanha language, culture stories and traditions. The film is 9 minutes long and was created between 2007 and 2009.
My roles on Wadu was as animation director, animator and character TD. As animation director it was my responsibility to give guidance and direction to a group of four other animators while creating animation myself.
I was also character TD on this production which required the creation of three full body and facial rigs for the three hero characters that could perform the widest range of complex body mechanics and expressions possible. Of particular note is the joint based facial rig which was required to perform lip sync in the Adnyamathanha language spoken in the film.
Below is a selection of stills from scenes I animated.
