    Music : Oshino - Tree

    Experimenting and exploring positive and negative space within macro textures.

    This is a visual I shot on my new Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens. What a fun lens to play with, it's like having a microscope that you can film with.

    I filmed abstract shots of liquid and then made an edit to the Oshino track. The Quicktime that I edited was then used in Cinema 4D as a (sub poly) displacement map on a sphere.

  5. Camera Mapping is a 3D technic that allowes you to convert a single image into a scene with 3D camera movement. Everything you see in this video is made of single photos.

    I used Cinema 4D for the camera mapping and animation as well as Adobe Premiere for the final cut and color grading.

    I hope you like it!
