I'm a big fan of the 2D animated show "Rick and Morty" created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland that airs on Adult Swim. I simply felt inspired to recreate and animate these crazy charcaters in 3D for fun. The above video is my attempt at a 3D recreation of the first 2 minutes of the Pilot Episode 1. If you are a "Rick and Morty" fan I hope you enjoy my 3D rendition. I'm not affiliated or sponsored, I'm just exercising my artistic freedom of expression, enthusiasm and hope to entertain you as well. Warning - Not intended for children.

The first step was to extract the sequential frames from the original 2D animation. Those individual frames were then imported into Maya and overlay-ed on a polygon plain locked to the camera as a rotoscoping reference for animating the dialogue, body motions as well as for the ship turbulence.

Rick and Morty investigate a distress signal coming from an unkown derelict spacecraft deep in the Promethean Nebula. Slightly extended version of their 1 minute commercial to promote the new "Alien Covenant" movie.

Mick and Rorty - TELEPOD. A tribute to the Fly

This started off as a simple rig test for a Mr. Meeseeks and the little animation evolved as they often do.
