Happy Birthday big guy!

Transmissions is a full CG, hyper realistic piece that echos the photographic era of the 1970's. Washed out saturation and hints of vintage furniture set the scene for our spaceman on his big day. 

A repertoire piece with subtle details and textures, Transmissions is full of nostalgia and undertones of loneliness. A commentary on life and journeys made, we've taken the concept of a spaceman and placed him into this surreal yet familiar setting. The suit is a metaphorical and literal barrier between him and his surroundings and we've used the theme of a birthday party as a playful nod to childhood aspirations and adult realisations, something we can all relate to! 

We had a blast making this and its a great showcase for what you can achieve with strong themes, a good narrative and hyper realism. All CG, all made in house by our (inter) stellar team.
