Avance - Family Bridges


Particle Community Dynamics

I was lucky to be brought on by P3 Mediaworks to take their boards for Family Bridges Avance from beginning to end.

The first shot of the piece is designed to be the community that the whole piece strives to be. It needed to be bustling and lively, with each dot representing a person going about their lives. I designed a particle system within xparticles to create it. Positions were designated where groups of people gather and mingle, and each particle decides if it wants to stay in it’s current group or go join another. In addition to all of that, none of the particles could intersect the buildings! I had to make custom geometry which was read by an xpAvoid Modifier. P3 Even posted one of my test scenes on social media!
