Introducing La Main des Ma

Hello there !

I'm not sure to post in the right category... hope it will be ok.

Well, I was at Georges Melies School in France, and I co-directed a student short film with two friends of mine. I used Houdini Apprentice HD for most of the VFX (smoke, blood, rigid bodies...) and the other stuff was done with Maya, Photoshop and After Effects.

Some stills :

Really nice work! Congratulations - great job!

Quite incredible! I love it! It would be lovely to see a breakdown of some of the work you did in Houdini for it:)

Thank you so much everybody for your comments!

I do not yet have any reel with breakdown of the short... I know, I know, shame on me...

I'm going to take some pictures of the stuff done with houdini to show you that. Be right back ;)

Hop,

As I do not have yet any video making-off of the short, just a few screens to show you the type of effects done with Houdini.

Pop simulation + Particlefluidsurface, rendered with Mantra

Pop simulation + Metaballs, rendered with Mantra

As you can see, the goal was not to do a complex simulation, but a working one. After, it's more a compositing work and trying to obtain something 2D.

It is my first short like this but the 2D/3D mix was something very interesting to do :rolleyes:

I love the full package! Everything feels so tight and complete, as if no detail was overlooked.. I still can't get over that this is student work.. Incredible you guys..

Thank you all for your comments!

@michael > Today there is no any quicktime or full HD version. As we are still in a festival progress, I prefer to share a flash version, and keep the best one for the festival.

But maybe you're not able to watch the flash version ? Tell me what.

I can watch the flash version ...

but we don't allow flv here at work, so I was hoping there was a quicktime version I could download and share with the rest of C.O.R.E.
