"I have worked closely with Ariel for over 3 years and have really got to witness just how wide-ranging his talents as an animator are.
His vast background in traditional animation direction sets him apart from his peers and that's the major reason why his CG Animations shine!
As a Lead Animator he was constantly involved in the rigging process giving me precise recommendations on how to approach each work.
Ariel told me once "If you want to help me in my work, make the rig simple, and clean of madness controllers"
After so many years working in the TD field I figure his thoughts and recommendations where one of the best school I ever had as a rigger.
Ariel is one of the most skilled Character and Creature Animator I had worked with!
It was a pleasure to work with him and the rest of the team of Bitt Animation and I hope to cross professional path again."
