Oliver Animation

I was asked to animate M.A.X. (a quadruped robot) so that he felt like your loyal and faithful puppy who is still learning the world, while at the same time keeping in mind that he was a dangerous military weapon. I referenced a lot of playful dog park videos for Max so he would move and bounce like he had puppy-like energy. At the same time, I made sure to make his weight still feel like he was made of heavy machinery.
