Captain Marvel & a year's worth of Funko rigging!

Continuing our body of rigging work for Funko Animation throughout 2018 and in to 2019, we are pleased to share the latest short ‘Captain Marvel Goes Higher, Further, Faster!’. These simple large-headed characters are built using our in-house automated rigging pipeline, ensuring quick and reliable turnarounds with flexible animation controls.

Highlights below include ‘Welcome to Wetmore Forest’ which required Flex to add subtler rigging controls to help bring extra appeal to their characters, as well as an Ewok romp through Endor for the exclusive Box Trailer. Many thanks to Funko Animation for working with Flex Animation on these shorts.

Messy goes to Okido - BBC (Series 2)

In the second half of 2017 Flex Animation was delighted to assist Doodle Productions (sister company of Squint Opera) with characters for the second series of ‘Messi goes to Okido’.
