Transformation

This is the masters project I did for the MA Digital Effects. This project shows the transformation of a common girl into a fairy, with the magic of a necklace. The aim of this scene was to create a particle system wrapping the real life actress and create the wings. Besides creating the 3D assets, the acquisition and integration were crucial to create the piece.

The software used for this video: Houdini and Nuke.

The following video shows the making of Transformation.

The scene is illuminated with a spotlight which creates caustics and cathedral rays, simulating a real underwater environment. The scene is finalised with sand particles and bubbles footage creating the illusion of underwater elements.

Fifty  years ago this language was almost dead, but now it has recover and we are about one million of proud speakers.
