Obsidian is the first time I’ve decided to direct and design a CG short from start to finish. It was intended for my SideFX presentation in Barcelona - April 2020 which was unfortunately cancelled. There’s no real deep meaning or story, that’s up to interpretation... just an opportunity to create freely outside the scope of regular client work. All of the scenes were finished in around 2 and a half weeks.
Created in Houdini, rendered with Redshift.

A special thanks to Zelig Sound for the fantastic music and sound design.
