This is my final assignment as a 3D-student at Høyskolen Kristiania avd. Westerdals in Oslo. It is a short-film focused on architectural visualization.

The last couple of months I've been working on this short film. It is the result of my growing interest in architectural visualization and my interest in making 3D for the movies. In this project I could combine both these interests.

But I also wanted to challenge myself with something I had never done before, which was working in Unreal Engine. I wanted to base the project around Unreal Engine and working in real-time, because I think this technology is fascinating. This is the result.

My workflow have consisted of 3DS Max, ArchiCad, Substance Painter and Unreal Engine. Most of the vegetation is different packs from the Unreal Store. I've never really worked properly in Unreal Engine, so the process consisted of a lot of try and fail and try again. But I was happy with what I ended up with, and really impressed with what you can accomplish by working in real-time! 

Some stills from the film. With this project I wanted to work more with the use of composition, colors and so on. In my earlier projects I have focused far to little on this important aspects.

Thanks for checking out my submission. Feedback is appreciated!
