Mycelium Previs

A previs of a shot taken through the mycelium. The camera gradually pans in into a developing fruiting body, moving to the gentle pace of the music as shown in the animatic. This leads to the transition outside the mycelium to the final growth of the mushroom.



Some more experimentation is necessary as I intend to have much more branching lines of mycelium to give the further illusion of growth and movement. As for materials, I'm hoping to maintain a quality from my original concept paintings with the colour and particles.

Did you paint that backdrop yourself? I love the subtle sense of depth it creates as the camera zooms in.

Hey Simon, oh the backdrop is just one of my concept paintings on a plane to help fill the darkspace. I'll probably have to refine it though in the real thing.

looking good Leo, personally I would taper the ends of the mycellium and round them off, also some rotation as they grow would break up the slighty mechanical feel they have right now, oh and a little depth of field to soften the scene.

Cheers for the feedback Simon, will definitely be trying those.
