Director Ben West presents a 7.5 minutes short movie „Fugu and Tako“. Have a glimpse of its trailer below.
The film features two Japanese market men and their adventure that started in a sushi bar. One of them is not happy about the food and makes some remarks towards the chef. Therefore he gets a puffer fish, eats it and starts to turn into a fish himself! The movie documents how is he going. Pretty crazy!
The creatives talked about the technique: „”Our primary software is Houdini. We used it for its procedural work flow for everything from character animation to effects. All the animation was completed in Houdini with a specific facial rig used to match the actors’ performance and enhance where required“.
