Case Study MOHAWK Animation
1. Project Description

HUMVEE for a DARPA submittal.
Within this project, MillieModels attended Engineering concept meetings on a daily basis. Each day the Ideas and concepts discussed were draw in cad and animated using 3D Max to look for all possible issues in design. As part of the opening discusions each day MillieModels was asked to present all animations and drawings and point out problems identified during the visualization process. Because of this ability to rapidly visualize and determine faults the Engineer group was able to complete there initial design 2 weeks ahaid of schedule.

A meeting to be briefed on animation content, final format, required size and other key items was then held.  We created a series of storyboard panels to outline the animation and a draft of the narration to be included in the animation.
After a review process with MACRO Industries, the storyboard and narration script was finalized and approved.  We built the 3D model and submitted it for approval to MACRO.  After approval was granted, we began a rough draft of the animation based on the storyboard panels previously approved.  The soundtrack and narration were recorded and inserted into the animation.  The rough draft animation was submitted and adjustments were made.  A fine draft animation was rendered in low quality and upon approval, the final animation was rendered in high quality per previous delivery requirements.

For this project, MillieModels used graphic artist, modeler, animator, sound technician and narrator.
