I'm simply intrigued always with the use of Houdini and similars. I'm only starting to really get the grasp of the software and see all the possibilities. Then you get to see all these examples of beautifully crafted systems of particles, smoke and terrain. It has almost an alien look on it's own. Houdini is taking over the next level motion and vfx tools.
"Above" is a miniature space odyssey that toys with scale and perspective. This challenging/rewarding personal project is a study of texture, atmosphere, and proceduralism. My second personal short, proved again to be a tremendous experience for artistic growth and technical proficiency. Starting off as an exercise to become familiar with Houdini's terrain generation tools, this project progressed into a piece that is inching ever closer to quieting my inner creative demons.
