We are seeking a 3D animator to create two nearly identical animated loops of a human walking sequence (two steps of the gait cycle). Similar to the Mixamo walking sequence shown here: [login to view URL] (fourth row / third column).
Loop 1 to illustrate healthy sensory input as it moves from the soles of the feet to the brain. The brain then uses this complete sensory input to send the appropriate signals to the muscles in the lower limbs, hips, and back, which result in optimal alignment throughout.
Loop 2 to illustrate insufficient sensory input as it moves from the soles of the feet to the brain. The brain then uses this poor sensory input to send incomplete signals to the muscles in the lower limbs, hips, and back, which result in inefficient alignment throughout.
The sensory input to be shown as coloured light(s) that move(s) from the soles of the feet to light up the brain. The brain signals to the lower limb muscles to be illustrated by corresponding coloured light(s). Muscle activation to be illustrated by simple drawings that appear when activated. Alignment through the knee to be illustrated by a straight line for Loop 1 and two lines intersecting to create an angle for Loop 2.
The human form in the animation should have minimal features, and the animation sequences should be as clean and straightforward as possible without a lot of extraneous realistic detail. It is more important to illustrate the sensory movement, muscle activation, and related alignment concepts.
Additional information will be provided to interested parties.
