Role: Fx Animator, Designer, Compositor
Art House is a delightfully gruesome horror film following Sid and Jamie to their fate in a dingy theatre.
I was lucky enough to see this film built from the ground up by a talented all-women team in my capstone class. When quarantine ended their access to the shoot space, we began brainstorming compositing options for 2D fx. I had the opportunity to animate this soda splash, experimenting with ways of compositing cel animation into the detailed and tactile sets of the film.
The beautiful lighting of this shot, masterminded by Nicole Harker, added an extra challenge to the fx design.
I explored different ways of turning hand drawn ice and soda into materials with transparency and naturalistic highlights.
