Gabriele Pennacchioli - Croods Showreel

Here is my Croods showreel.
The first scene is the longest scene I've ever done in animation: 34 seconds!
It follows the Tar pit sequence. In that sequence I animated Grug and Jakob Jensen animated Guy.
Everything else is all animated by me.

Panther casts

Here are the two cast prototypes of my panther.

Ted Forgrave did the molds and casts and I'm very happy with the final result.
The first one is cast with a mix of bronze powder (30%) and black resin (70%).
The second one is white resin.

We are going to make a limited series (50 pieces). Let me know if you are interested in a copy.
