TESTING THE FEATHER SYSTEM for the FAMOUS GROUSE
Production Company Hibbert Ralph Animation Ltd. Chief Animator Shaun Magher.
This demonstrates the system I developed for controlling feathers which were used on the latest round of Famous Grouse whisky commercials.   I prepared this test to show the versatility of the feather behavior.   Despite being easy to use each feather has it's own unique set of parameters including vibration frequency and amplitude. Notice how the feathers tend to straighten out according to the direction of the wind. (Please Note: This wind tunnel produces sound if you are using a Microsoft Internet Explorer. If your not, I'm afraid it doesn't.)
