Excellent job. Was that done in Blender?

# Yes Blender and imported into AfterEffects
the tracking was via Blenders' new tracking feature although I had to help the track along a bit with some tweaks in AfterEffects.
Here's the model in it's development stages.

# Lots of hard work and toil not just modelling the thing but doing the particle system for the spikes
went through many trial and errors still not 100% happy with them but it's a learning exercise. Then Came the Rigging with wasn't easy either. Then the one which was the make or break was the Tracking of the footage and getting the Hedgehog to sit in the scene, colour correct and add and shadow layer which had to be mostly bodged together because it wasn't playing nicely but eventually got it all together, phew!

Oh, and edit on the edit above, Dave != Dave, obviously.

Some say Dave is from Cirencester, but looking at his posting times I think he *is* actually from the other side of the world; vrnetwork.ning.com/profile/Moggy

Funny posts are supposed to make up for a lack of technical expertise.
To create something funny with hard work and superlative skill is frankly not allowed.
Now go and stand in the corner and think about what you've done.
