A stylized visualization of life growing in the aether, with different shapes colliding, merging and new shapes growing. There's some remarkable 3D shape-morphing, with very organic and fluid movement, all created and rendered in After Effects. We used ShapeShifter Ae and FreeForm Pro for the background and all the shapes. Snappy rendering with an NVIDIA Quadro K5000 GPU equipped workstation.
Trivia tidbit: The word "protoplasm" comes from the Greek protos for first, and plasma for thing formed.
