My final project in 3D Animation and Visual Effects with Lightwave3D of FX Animation Barcelona 3D School.
This project has been selected as one of the short films shown in FILMETS, Badalona Film Festival, one of the most important short film festivals in the world.
Catalan television broadcast my interview and video of the facade of the Casa Batllo. See it in (only from minute 35 onwards) tv3.cat/videos/4502853/Lencis-de-Gala-a-Sala-33
Two where the main reasons that pushed me to choose this unique building as a reference for my 3D modelling course graduation exercise.
The first one is that I live close to it and since childhood I have always been fascinated as it seems out of the country of “Neverland”.
The second one is that its organic shapes, different from the vast majority of buildings, posed a challenge for a person like me used to model rectilinear forms.
The 3D course that I graduated from was with Lightwave, ideal software for sculping wavy surfaces.
This and the fact that I am an architect seemed the ideal excuse as a final exercise.
The project was not only modelling, but to create a video. Therefore I needed something that gave sense to the house tour. I decided to finally explain, in a graphic and comparative manner, Gaudi’s main source of inspiration: Shapes that himself found in nature.
This was my starting point as I started moving the camera with movements that would be impossible in reality and forced it to stop in front of each significant architectural element, showing the great similarity with elements that nature has carved through simply working the images in photoshop.
