Fire Bender Personal Work

This is a Fire Bender I made inspired by Avatar: The Legend of Aang. This was done in Houdini.This is how I imagine a fire benders fire to look like in real life, I did research and studied the Rosenbauer (one of the largest manufacturers for fire fighting equipment in the world) youtube channel and watched many controlled fire scenarios as well as watch more flamethrower videos to study the movements and shading.

Forest FirePersonal Work

More on this shot and the full video can be found on my portfolio site which is linked above. I was inspired to do this shot by a scene in Only The Brave. I studied the California forest fires and mainly the recent Thomas Fire in order to study the realism and shading as well as movements and such. This was done over the span of a few weeks and other versions of this shot were rendered out before I decided on this one to be the final one as I felt it was better.

Meteor Personal Work

This is a Calcium based meteor, which is why it is purple, this was done in Houdini.This is how a meteor might look burning up and breaking apart when entering earth stratosphere. I studied and researched on meteors through the NASA site and other research journals.

Mediacorp: When Duty Calls Final Year Project

This is an explosion that I made in Houdini for Mediacorp.I studied explosion footage to try and get this as close to real as possible and rendered out many different layers to give my compositor more flexibility and freedom to composite.
