Working since 2015 as a professional Animator, Joe Toole is a highly versatile animator with experience games and film. Focused mainly on character and creature animation, he strives for a high quality of work and takes pride in his attention to detail and broad range of skills.

Joe is currently an animator at Infinity plus Two and has previously worked at Method Studios on VFX Films in Melbourne, Australia. This is where Joe finds the time to work on personal projects to create his own Action Shots for his demo reel.

“Some personal projects take a week, some take an afternoon. Some client projects take 6 months, some take a week. It’s all case by case.” Toole explains to 80LV in an interview.

Toole discusses with 80LV where his ideas come from,
“Sometimes, I get inspiration simply from looking at a character/rig. I love seeing a design and getting hit with all the ways things could move. Sometimes, I can just daydream and get new ideas. I actually like to float in those isolation tanks, ideas might come to me in there. “
.
.
Toole also reveals some of his workflows for creating action shots,
“For almost all of my personal stuff, I usually just jump straight into Maya and start laying down poses and pulling out key sections from my imagination. For client work, the approach might be a bit different, especially at the beginning of business relationships. Sometimes, it requires reference filming for long complex motions, sometimes – lots of back and forth to get the exact right idea across. Again, it’s case by case.”
