Course overview Course overview
Build cartoony or realistic rigs
This course is intended to not just click buttons and follow the path that Maya lays out, but deep into the different nodes that Maya has and see how we can use this to our advantage to create flexible rigs. At the end of the course the students should have a good understanding of how data flows through Maya and how they can manipulate this. In addition they will have solid ideas and techniques for building and maintaining rigs for production.

Taking your skills to the next level.
Mathias Royrvik started out in the industry as a runner at Framestore London before he joined MPC London as a rigger and worked his way up to become a lead rigger. He's currently working at Ninja Theory as a Senior Technical Artist with a focus on rigging. While at MPC he would often spend time teaching new artists the pipeline, tools and general Maya/rigging ideas, something that led to him officially working on rigging documentation and training new hires. He worked on a wide range of rigging problems from tentacles to digi-dubles to custom facial rigs. Some of his film credits include Aquaman, Underwater, Alien: Covenant and Wonder Woman.
