“PJ” - The 8 tentacled octopus character designed, modeled, rigged & animated for the Disney Event Group. PJ incorporated many different custom animations that the 20 minute corporate presentation called for, such as showcasing Microsoft hardware, opening large clams, tapping the screen, and even an embarrassing ink blot. The underwater ocean environment came to life with realistic caustics, interactive fish, vibrant coral life, and even an actual sunken Pirate Ship.
Using Unity’s realtime control of the character, a 2 man crew operates all of the functions and animations of PJ backstage. It was delivered and showcased at the Disney Swan & Dolphin Hotel to a conference of over 200 people.

It couldn’t be “THE” castle, but still had to feel as if it were a part of a Disney like experience
