Initial Examples on Clay Characters

Welcome to NERD! We love to toy with all sorts & types of animation techniques and visual styles.
Here are just a few examples of clay character animation from more 'realistic' to quirky and exaggerated features and bodies. Those were all created and brought to life with a range of different brief requirements in mind so please see them as examples of the level of movement and features. We will collaborate closely with you to design, craft and bring to life a set of characters that will perfectly slot into your creative concept, in terms of the tone, look & feel. The lat spot on here is not what you are looking for at all but i included it as it has a really nice transition!
