I was lucky to be hired by Bait Studio who worked with Armoury on this Brand film for De Beers jewelers. We worked in a small team of one FX TD and one Compositor under a thigh schedule (just a couple of days) to portray the beginning of light based of Armoury's storyboards and simple animatic. I was responsible for all CG work which included lots of precisely controlled particles, fracturing, cloud volumetrics and some creative shading to create the final effect. Render was done into lots of colour and data passes for complete control over the visuals in compositing stage which was handled in Nuke.

3D, FX: Houdini FX
Render: Mantra
