observation at the Aquariums, video and film footage has been
used to develop each of the characters in the animation. Through
the "Design Process" we conceptualize and formulate
the characters and their motion and interaction with other characters.
The process begins with a sketch on paper, followed by rough
clay models and on through to the modeling, rigging of the characters.
Materials and textures created are created and the environment
is lighted, Finally, the animation of the characters in the
environment is achieved through IK, FK, path and scripted schooling..
