C E L L U L A R C I R C U I T R Y - ZBrush and Aftereffects
Hi! I recently completed a film called Cellular Circuitry. It was created using ZBrush, Aftereffects, and Premiere. I was able to sidestep using other 3D software like Maya by using the animation system in ZBrush to make all of the morphing geometry. I rendered out passes and used a normal map pass to help relight the geometry in Aftereffects.

Cellular Circuitry is a stream of digital sculptures and soundscapes that dynamically transmute between organic and circuit-like motifs. It is a reflection of artificial versus natural systems animated in such a way to show that they are intimately connected to one another. My goal was to closely link the visual changes on screen with a mix of natural and digitally sourced sounds. Some sounds are meditative and inviting while others are edgy and alien. They are an audial parallel of what the viewer is seeing and changes in sync with the morphing visual forms they represent.
