The second season of CB Fest has reached its penultimate short with the online premiere of Change (Canada, 2017), an experimental piece that explores the ever-shifting nature of the universe.
Asteroids morph into wormholes, then evolve into tentacles in this film that playfully tweaks the viewer’s sense of time and space. A cluster of brilliant cg astral bodies dance across the screen as ethereal clicks and hi-hats rattle off in the distance. All of these elements come together to create a hypnotic depiction of the dynamic cosmos.
Director Jonny Ostrem started the project as a material exploration intended to push the limits and capabilities of viewport rendering and lighting, with the project using real-time rendering techniques to unfurl the depths of the universe.
