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 :

Unfortunately there is not a lot of studios using Houdini in France... well, I know I will have to take my stuff and go in another place. But I'm completely ready for this!
I hope you'll enjoy the short. Feel free to comment :)

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...

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 + 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:
