Project I-M is a 3 minute VFX short done by students. None of us had any previous VFX experience before. In this video - we will show you how we managed to get our hardest VFX shot in the project. We, Ivaylo Petrov and Gerald Bussink, will pass through the full process - simulation with Realflow, setting up Maya and rendering with V-Ray and compositing it all in Nuke. Please enjoy the video.
