Compositing this would have been near impossible without the use of AEC4D. So grateful!!
In an effort to further my skill set through doing, I decided to make a short film utilising a few experiments in Cinema 4D using the Octane render engine for the first time. I've always been massively influenced by Science Fiction - most notably 2001, Sunshine, Interstellar, Apollo 13 to name a few but the idea of focusing on shot composition was the key point to this project. As opposed to other short films where I would usually storyboard the entire film and produce an Animatic, I instead focused on making concept boards for shot composition and then built the piece in the edit suite. I feel this lead to a more aesthetic lead piece allowing me to focus on the beauty of each shot over the overarching narrative.
