The open for the new VH1 show “The Fabulous Life” features multiple luxury items, like sports cars, designer high heels, yachts, and private jets, forming out of multiple cascades of liquid gold.
Galaxy 61's contribution:
Sourcing our extensive experience with dynamic liquid simulations, and pushing our newly upgraded render farm and 4X gigabit network to the limit, we simulated and rendered the 7 liquid transformations and 2 major splashes in just 2-1/2 weeks. Additional cascading droplets had to be simulated individually and merged with the viscous objects. Extensive previz at the outset and additional compositing tricks at the end made for a consistently surprising cascade of products, culminating in the huge golden splash that reveals the show's logo.
