One of the 3D crew who worked on the production of the 3D Animated Film PLanet 51, shows a quick overview of how he rigged the telescoping bendable stick from the Kipple Character using 3DS Max.

I have created this tutorial to show how I did the rig for kipple`s stick on the movie Planet 51.
I know it`s not a very hard rig, but I think it could be interesting for people who is starting to learning rigging because I used a mix of techniques.
I hope you like it.
