Work in progress

As the residency coming to the end, we all rushing out to produce our final output. Here is some of the screenshots of my work in progress.

My first initial process on producing the final output is to try to use any existing material that I’ve created previously to design a new composition of the Pohon Beringin.


I’ve realize that the shape and the obs/sphere does not work in this specific composition. I would like to explore creating the shapes directly in 3D.

Here is some of the screenshot on my modelling and rendering of the additional elements for the composition.

Once I’ve render it out separately I then bring it into After Effects to explore different sets of composition base on sketches that I’ve done earlier on.

I will update more detail on how did I came up with the composition in the next post.
