This was my final project studying MA Digital Effects at Bournemouth University.
The premise is to show a reality were ships were not made to sail on the seas, but rather in the clouds and to show a fantasy world which is still rooted within reality. The sequence was developed to depict a ship leaving a harbour and sailing within this fantasy landscape. The target of the sequence is to give the audience a real “wow” factor by showing some beautiful and epic landscapes which this ship sails through.
I worked with two other guys from my course and I did pretty much all the effects work within the piece. Houdini was used for the modelling and effects and Nuke was used for compositing.
