Gadanthara is the main character’s name of our short film, for now titled “Detail Library”, because it is the short that started the whole idea of the project. Gadanthara is a worker of Detail Library, an institution that cares for and houses all the details of the World, he is a posters paster and really loves what he does.

This character has a peculiar personality and also an anatomy different from the usual, having everything that a human has, except for: mouth, nose, ears, neck… And besides that, he uses a yellow raincoat which consists on three layers of clothing:
An “overcoat” with a “poncho” on and a hood. We also have buttons / loops and a “belt” to tie it all. Talking about accessories, it also has a “roll” and a “bucket” used to paste the posters.

All this have to be a rig.
Relatively smooth to pose and animate.
Done without any kind of simulations (I tested it and it is very problematic).
