This is a project made for Ragazzo, a italian fast food chain in Brazil. They were releasing a new product, little balls of fried chicken called Chicken Balls and hired Big Studios to make the art for printing and advertising.

We had about 2 or 3 weeks from concept to the final piece and I was responsible for the animation of the film (except for the sauce dynamics). Animating the little chicken was a challenge for me, it was the first time I animated a character dancing and it had to be done in only a week, but the final result was very funny.

To make this I used Maya for the Animation. At the end of the project I also helped rendering some masks for color correction, did some additional modeling in Zbrush and a couple of shots compositing on Nuke.
