I made a fully CG short film! It's kind of a hybrid of a music video and an art film.
Harmony is meant to be elegant, artistic, and expressive. I "hand-animated" the hands, did the special effects in Houdini, then rendered using Redshift.
Shortly after Harmony went public, it had been showcased in a 2018 TEDx talk, Minnesota Electronic Theater, MinnAnimate7, & The MinneMini.
This is my first project of any sort using Houdini. I hope you like it!
