Boriya

Short animation, 17mn, 2019

Original title : 보리야

Poetic fable depicting the story of a young girl that almost drown in a river. A spiritual encounter with nature and its elements.

I was the VFX Supervisor and Compositor on this animation. I did the plant fields simulation and rendering with Maya, XGen and Arnold. I first spent a long time researching a 2d style that would match the hand-drawn animation. Then I explored real-time solutions, but technical limitations (number of strands and alpha depth limit) on Unity and Redshift at that time made me choose Arnold.


Stills






Other shots were made with camera mapping and 2d procedural shaders.
