Rory Alderton is a senior animator at League of Legends developers Riot, where he's one of the people responsible for putting the moves in the game's Champions.

In a post over on Riot's site, he goes into great detail on the process behind animating the game's characters, including the revelation that the Champions are animated by hand-keyed animation, "because it's integral to maintaining our in-house style and helps us deliver smooth and instant animations that don't affect League's gameplay".
