The strange behavior is the Hare that can ponder the clouds shape.
I'm going for a subtle approach to the brief.
For this pre-vis the hares are just some grouped primitives and a basic landscape applied for the ground. Clouds are presently at the idea stage, I want to make the shapes much more defined and hopefully achieve a human figure.

Love this concept... should be great fun to pull together too:thumbsup:

could turn out to be pretty interesting. will there be dialogue among the rabbits?
are you planning on making the clouds w/ particles? would be pretty neat to see the clouds morph into different shapes/figures and stuff.

i know it is pre-vis, but it looks like it may be a bit dark....just a thought.

good luck.

Thanks for the intrest.

I'm planning on the hares to have an internal monolouge and the main character trying to point out to the others that the clouds are making funny shapes but they cant' understand what he is saying as hares don't have a abstract language like humans.
But at this stage it looks like I might just end up with a fly around as my other projects keep demanding more attention.

Its a bit dark because you only really see hares about in the early morning, hopefully I will be able to pull of that magic light feeling you get at dawn.

The clouds are Carraras volumetric cloud primitives and I have been playing around with layering them in 3D space to mimic the way real clouds move in front and behind each other to make different shapes.

interesting. ...i was thinking about playing w/ some type of cloud creation in maya, but i'm not sure which solution i want to approach.
