Pacific Rim Animation Reel, Falling Cars 'n' All

With the recent release of Pacific Rim for purchase I thought I'd create an edit of all the shots I animated on the film. I've even included the simpler ones of falling cars and hovering helicopters.

I've also added a few shots for continuity (marked with a red dot), most of which don't contain animation apart from the one at 0:52 which was animated by Cedric Lo. So please note, that's his great work there.

Pacific Rim was a really enjoyable project to work on. I joined ILM thinking that, with their work being of such high quality, there would be many rounds of revisions and getting shots approved would take a long time. I was surprised to find that there was a lot of trust placed in everyone's ability and with unprecedented access to the director, Guillermo del Toro, I was able to animate more footage in 6 months than on any other live-action film I can think of.
