I decided to look into what kind of special effects can be achieved with Houdini and how that compares to Maya and After Effects. It looks like a great software to learn to use, so I am planning to get it and do some testing on it.
Below is my work for the modeling project. Towards the end I started adding some colour and texture to figure out what works best with this style.
These are the final renders I put together in order to convey the narrative we agreed on. We decided not to use the textured/uv mapped version for this video, because the rendering time was ridiculously high when we included all of our textured assets.
A big rush indeed.
Music composed by Paul Halley. I was lucky to have a friend show me a short animation called The Maker which used a different song of the same composer as soundtrack. It immediately made me think of our project so I incorporated a similar sound.
