Durable Nature

by Ars Thanea
  • Animation
  • VFX

Ars Thanea is an award-winning digital design studio based in Warsaw, Poland, who specialize in 3D animation, live action pieces, visual FX and augmented/virtual reality effects. As well as building up an impressive artistic portfolio with the likes of Paramount Pictures, they have created work alongside some of the globes leading brands such as Nike, Disney, and Ford.

Their project takes the form of a 3D animation in which the environment drives the storytelling arc, as a battle between water and ice rejuvenates and replenishes the barren wilderness. To create their world, artistic director Adam Torczyński has overseen a project in which every droplet is perfectly rendered, making his animated world itself the protagonist of the piece.

Decoded

See how a hyper-realistic environment is rendered in CG as 3D models of the objects are rigged wireframe foundations to give Ars Thanea full creative control. Through smooth rotation and movement, each element of the project is scaled in minute detail, culminating in a finely textured and perfectly rendered visual story.
