Motion I Design I 3D


I had the opportunity to work with Evolve Studio to be part of there VFX pipeline for Zedd’s music video with National Geographic called “One Strange Rock.”

I played a small part, cleaning footage, and filling in shadows from the projected content, as well as adding 3D rocks to the footage.

The piano was blocking some of the projected content, so I took some of the shots and filled in the gaps behind him, removed reflections from the piano, etc.

The wide shots needed a progression of rocks filling in the scene. I used a mixture of Cinema 4D cloner object and x-particles to scatter and animate the rocks.

Fairly simple set up. Just some basic colored area lights and a cave HDRI to match the reflections. Rendered out with Octane.
