Ever wondered how a monster should behave during dinner? Well look no further, table manners gives you simple advice on the correct table etiquette for our shadow dwelling friends.
The Concept

o-motion created table manners as a reaction to a job they were proud of that was pulled by the client at the 11th hour. Table Manners was their self initiated creative outlet, as it was something they knew they would 100% be able to share with the world when finished.

The Production

The monsters were initially hand drawn then textured in Photoshop. The team then took these drawings and modelled the characters and scene in C4D. This was rigged and animated in Maya which in turn was taken back into C4D to be textured and rendered. It was all composited together with the 2D background in After Effects and finally handed over to have the music and sfx added.
