An internal project looking at future
materials and their uses in a series of short films. The films I
worked on looked at using honeycomb as a building material and a
kinetic material as a microplastic filter in the sea.
I mainly worked as a Houdini technical artist, doing R&D for both films,
creating the initial honeycomb structure and procedural bee system
and the sea filter's simulation/animation. I also helped to translate
simulation attributes into shader attributes for the sea filter film.
An early animation of the honeycomb building and the
underlying bee system in the final animation which grows the honeycomb
through an infections style spreading.
