Making of here :

 



Steel Life is an experimental student short film based on aesthetics of visual effects. It was produced at university Paris 8 for my master thesis graduation in Arts et Technologies de l'Image. My goal was to achieve an onirical and aesthetic treatment of visual effects through CG art. I first experimented some technicals aspects through Maya and Real Flow. Once I gathered visual dynamics that I liked, I started planning the shots whithout any fixed ideas or predefined narrative scheme. After the final jury I decided to show the short to Mathieu Alvado, a talented composer, who agreed to write an original soundtrack for the piece. While he wrotes the music, I added more shots, finished up others, refining it all. Thanks to Christophe Eliot and other passionnate people, Mathieu succeded to gather the Star Pop Orchestra to play the score. It was recorded at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and was to me one of the greatest moment of the project. All these people shared their time and talent to complete the final piece. Few months later after a final mixing and editing session, the short was done, ready for release.

This is a short selection and editing of the first shots I did with the HV20. Shot in april/may 2008 at Paris. I lived one year in the heart of the city, and it was for me a great occasion to remember it through this short edit. Postproduced with CS3, all shot graded and "maked up" in After.
