About the project
A story about the greatest ramen ever sold when a dejected young office worker stumbles across a small ramen shop on his commute home. Inspired by an incredible ramen chef and friend during my time spent living in Japan.
This animation was a project made during my final year studying Media Arts Production at the University of Technology Sydney. It was heavily influenced by the experiences and amazing people I met during my one year stay in Sapporo, Japan. I tried to apply the minimalist forms of Japanese art into the design and rendering process of the animation.
All the characters were rigged and animated in Maya with the final rendering done with mental ray.
