Are you ready to step back into reality?
Welcome to The Connection Programme.
Through learning, research and analysis, we’ll develop our creative skills and explore the connections between Art, STEM subjects, Computer Graphics and beyond.
For our first Connection Programme project, we’ll be collaborating with the Haiti Ocean Project and 100% of the proceeds from this programme will be donated to their charity to support their mission of protecting high-profile marine life and conversation of the ocean.
From a VFX perspective, we’ll be looking to gather reference onsite (or should I say “under the sea”) in Haiti, followed by completing a full asset build of an Oceanic Whitetip Shark (model, texture, lookdev, rigging, etc). We’ll then look to place our digital asset into a full CG environment and/or filmed backplates. All of this will be complemented with research into the habitat, the anatomy of the species, and much more.
