Two of my compositing shots from school. A lonely desert traveler, and a human far from home.

Det gör ont, men gå ända

Du är här och kom hit som en vandrare"

For a school project I wanted to explore the possibilities of turning my cold, Norwegian city into a dry desert landscape through compositing. This shot was filmed at a sand volleyball field in Oslo. 

Everything is done by me, except for the modeling and texturing of the 3D models of the city and the rocky mountains, which are from Kitbash and Quixel Megascans. 

I tracked, rotoed and keyed the shot in Nuke, created the layout and assembled the 3D scene in Maya, used Houdini to create procedural sand dunes, created sand storm elements with Nuke particles, and composited everything in Nuke.

I love science fiction, so another shot I wanted to create was a space shot. For this one, I created a backstory of the characters having to leave earth because of natural disasters. The main character is waiting for his family to arrive in a shuttle, but is told they didn't make it.

Keyed, rotoed and tracked in Nuke, 3D models were supplied by our school. I created the layout and assebled the 3D in Maya, and composited everything in Nuke.
