The Starling

A while back we had a show that was just a bit different - instead of the usual destruction, water and explosions, it was a funny, intimate, nimble film about a grieving mom and a little bird!
We built assets in Blender, animated in Maya, lit in Katana, and the feathers groom and simulation in Houdini. Tried some readymade solutions for feather design, and eventually built our own - that was plenty of fun!
