The making of the SCI 'Collider' ident. We were asked by our good friends at ManvsMachine to help create their Collider concept for Discovery Science.
Working from numerous references, we created the interior/lab and higly detailed collider/accelerator model before focusing on the visual effects for the evolving substance and rocks/crystals the collider seemingly creates. The tweezers and gloved hand that enter the frame are shot elements that we did against greenscreen in the studio. The effect of element/rocks that form and evolve was created with a combination of morph targets, Krakatoa volume filled Rayfire fragments and carefully chosen keyframes for each evolution stage to take place.
