First Aid Experience - emergeWorlds + St John’s Ambulance - 2018

At the start of 2018, I had the wonderful privilege to work at emergeWorlds on a project for St John's Ambulance. We designed a first aid training experience for Virtual Reality using the Leap Motion controls.

A few things I'd like to say about this project.

The rig I created did everything I required it to do in Maya, so I don't think I'd change anything on that end. Also, her arms were initially designed to retract into the body so that she could be more pod-like so I made the rig accommodate and it worked great.

However, I made the animations a little too smooth, and I let some pieces just float (when they aren't meant to) instead of coming to a rest. Reviewing the animations now shows me that I was also a little behind following the voice work (however it is test audio - which was meant to be replaced)

I was limited to only body language in Maya to convey emotions because the eye animations were programmed in unity and animated in there.
