Happy new year!
« on: January 13, 2015, 10:29:37 PM »
Here is a short "Happy new year"-animation made by Unexpected, the FX company I already had the pleasure to work with a few times featuring an in Germany well known comedy duo named "Badesalz".
http://vimeo.com/116665269
It doesn't really matter that those who don't understand German don't know what these guys are talking about. Something about stolen rockets and a discussion about some rather unknown warm places on earth ;).

I made the island scene in the second half of the clip. The palms are animated using the mesh displacer. The water is animated as well and I also used a caustics image sequence made with the free caustics generator.
The surf is created using a painted shader for the rough shoreline and an animated power fractal for the foam pattern and it's displacement.

Wow, that is a great little movie, really enjoyed it! Your island is amazing, especially the very convincing tree movement.

I agree, impressive work! I'll be sure to give it a little more exposure on social media a bit later in the week. :)

Thanks guys. Yes Kadri, they have a strong "hessisch" dialect. They are from the area near Frankfurt, about 70km south of where I live. My dialect is a bit different, but nevertheless it makes me feel like home when I hear them talk (nonsense).
