I remember when Keil Figgins posted a test render of just the animation pass a few months ago, but I could stare at this beautifully done character and prop destruction animation on repeat all day. Keil has worked this keyframed magic using a nice rig, custom blendshapes and clusters. Kudos to the rest of the team for the awesome designs, sounds, models, environment, fx and lighting too.

Check out the making-of page and note that many of the thumbnails there are actually Quicktime links.
