    Cracking the Snake Code on 'The Bad Guys'



    A snake is simply a tube and doesn’t have shoulders or hips that are traditionally complicated to rig on human characters. However, rigging a snake is complicated enough even just for slithering actions. Mr. Snake in the film The Bad Guys uses its tail like an arm and acts like a human, walks like a human, and even plays a guitar! This talk presents the wide variety of rigging techniques that were used to achieve the unique cartoony actions of Mr. Snake.
