InterView with a coronavirus
3d animated short film
Doing our part in fighting misinformation, Nidhi Reddy, Tyler Eaton and I made this short animation for social media. The video imagines a documentary style interview with a coronavirus where that covers topics such as masks, Donald Trump and vaccines. On the technical side, I developed a system in C4D that enabled the mouth to open and close for the character's speech based on the waveforms of the dialogue. Extreme depth of field was used to give a microscopic effect. Dust particles were added to give the sense that the interview is taking place in liquid.
