This amazing 4 minute TVC/short film was the third installation of the Momotaro (Peach Boy) series for Pepsi in Japan. It showcases Alt’s third Oni, a winged demon.
I was mainly responsible for the animation of the parakeets as well as 2 simple Oni shots and track checks. The bird shot at 00:24 is where I keyframe animated 24 parakeets. I did make a general flight cycle that was used across most of the flying birds, but each individual bird had its own flight path and then needed individual modifications. Not to mention there were also birds clinging to the wall and perched in the nest and along the sides that had custom animation.
