Jamming with the team at Midnight Sherpa was an amazing experience. This was my first project with them and I had an absolute blast. This spot was created for the brand Arculus to show off the next level technology they were bringing to the space of crypto cold storage. I developed the light scan effect in Houdini and designed/animated in Cinema 4D. This was my greatest forray to date of a Houdini to C4D workflow. The speed and power of Houdini's procedural VDB workflow really allowed this effect to shine. Each scan was basically the same setup with slight variations depending on the needs for the specific shot.
Created with Houdini, Cinema 4D, Redshift, and After Effects.
