“Modeler’s Dream” short

This has been receiving some attention lately, so I thought I would share it here. It was done as a final project for an animation art history class, and represents one of my first serious forays into the realm of experimental animation. If you’re in the mood for something a little different, enjoy!

Inspired by the work of experimental animators such as Robert Breer and Jordon Belson, this is an abstract piece exploring geometric shapes, colors and sounds, which are normally logical processes in Maya, on a more visceral and subconscious level. In short, it is an attempt to take a very modern program and use it in the fashion of experimental animators who have come before.

Created using Maya with Mental Ray’s contour shader and fluid deformations and finished in After Effects with audio edited in Audition.
