I was always very interested in Motion Design and found really interesting to combine HoudiniFx with design to create simple but interesting imagery.
I wanted to try this effect of smoke filling out the headphone which I saw from a spot Josh Closs did, called PSB Magnolia. Even those he used 3Ds Max and FumeFX I wanted to approach it using Houdini Pyro Fx.
After all the NFT boom I decided to create a loop animation. Always been drawn to satisfying loop animations and wanted to create some of my own.
Experimentation with Vellum coth and grains in Houdini with a motion design approach, glad to say this piece won the Best of Term prize at Gnomon for best grain effect.
