Work History
  • President, Rigging Supervisor

    Black Swan Effect

    January 2012 - January 2024

    At Black Swan Effect we make digital puppets, or when we want to sound cool, digital action figures. As a team of highly passionate and somewhat dorky riggers, we are dedicated to bringing your vision of your characters to life.

    Part of our secret sauce for creating such appealing, flexible and stable animation rigs is our proprietary rig builder, Armature. We are always swimming in code while we continue the development of Armature to insure that our quality and speed are cutting edge.
