The first is a plume of semen - the shot was fully animated when I took over, and I was in charge of lighting, rendering & compositing. We had to carefully make sure to make it look photoreal yet not distasteful in any way. The plume is a FumeFX vectorfield filled with Krakatoa particles.
The next shots feature a sperm cell entering the narrow space between the egg core and the egg shell, where it sets off a chain reaction, releasing material from "cortical granules" inside the egg, that hardens the shell, preventing other sperm cells from entering (very educational, working on something like this!) For these shots I was responsible for modelling (egg and egg shell), animation, simulations, lighting, rendering and compositing.
And the last shot is a forced perspective "wide shot" of the cortical granule reaction happening under the shell.
Stay tuned for breakdowns after the animations.
I hope you like it.
