The Challenge

To create 3D animated models for Augmented Reality content

As part of an EU project looking into how Augmented Reality could be used in a modern ‘smart city’ Sparta Digital created an app for use at the 2017 Manchester Manchester Christmas Markets.

Working for a small business has its challenges as you may find yourself having to wear many hats and quickly adjust to new roles. This project is a good example of that as I had to learn how to model and animate in 3D in order to produce content for the AR app.

The requirement was to create an animated Christmas Elf that would appear when you scanned the Christmas Mugs with the app. View it in action in the video below (48 seconds in).
