'And Then I Vanish' is a surreal motion poem, which has started as a simple spare time project months ago.
Since then it grew, it changed quite a lot - and now it's finally done.
I tried to restrict myself by some rules, e.G. only going for portraits & close-ups and maintaining the same light direction.
Made with Cinema4D & Octane Render.
