This is a neat 3D digital animation recreating Al Minns awesome charleston steps from a film in the 1950s. Don't know how this was done exactly, but the character does seem to mimic quite well a lot of the subtle styling of Al Minns. I'd love to get this animation for my Second Life avatar!
Done in Maya by university student maggisv in Maya. Nicely done!
Here's another awesome video of Al Minns and Leon James dancing.
