This is a recent, Rapid turn around, 3D cinematic I created for Mixamo Inc (, a Motion Capture Studio based in San Francisco, and Autodesk (  The workflow includes use of the Autodesk animation Store, which is built into 3DS Max 2013, and motion builder.

I enjoyed every moment of it and truly treasure the partnership and working relationship I have developed with their Motion Capture team, with Nateon Ajelo as the Motion capture Director.
