Sous La Floor – Blender quick movie

Benjamin Perry explores the life cycle of water and the impression of air pollution.

The goal of this quick movie is to point out the journey of a drop of water that begins its journey in a glacier and ends it within the immensity of the ocean. We comply with its journey by the waterways that may allow it to succeed in its purpose, resembling rivers, lakes and sewers. An ecological message is current on this movie: the additional we progress within the story, the extra traces of air pollution will probably be current. We begin with a picture of nature in its purest state, untouched by man, and finish with a picture of the ocean filled with rubbish.

The title “Sous la Floor” (“Below the Floor”) isn’t insignificant; it is clearly a part of the lexical discipline of water that is on the coronary heart of the quick movie. Nevertheless it additionally evokes one thing hidden or unknown to the world. And this mysterious, unhealthy factor staring again at us from the depths of the ocean is man-made air pollution.

This quick movie is there to make us conscious of our impression on a single drop of water, to point out us simply how a lot the world is deteriorating by our personal fault. It is about time we realized this and took motion to cease the catastrophe.

I created 3d environments based mostly on references from our world to realize a sensible end result. I used completely different approaches resembling fluid simulations and textures to create the primary character: water.

As for the sound, I recreated the ambiance of every scene utilizing royalty-free on-line sound banks. I additionally added my private contact by composing the primary music. I needed one thing melodic to accompany the great thing about nature, however I additionally needed so as to add a mysterious, darkish facet to point out that behind this nature there’s an issue we’ve to battle in opposition to.

So that is what I got here up with after 9 months’ work.
