Artist Murat Sayginer uses Cinema 4D to create a mysterious flood of images with a deserted island as a backdrop.
Volans is the name of a constellation in the southern sky, whose German name is ‘flying fish’. This fish, a deserted island and the starry sky inspired artist Murat Sayginer to create a spectacular short film, which he created entirely by himself. Murat began his career as an illustrator and photographer. According to Murat himself, the evolution to animation was the next logical step if you look at the work featured on his website. Many of his photos told stories and were often shown as photographic series. Murat was introduced to Cinema 4D about five years ago. He wanted to tell stories and photography alone was too restrictive for what he wanted to do.
As an internationally known artist who has won numerous awards, Murat has released four films on the online platform Vimeo – of which Volans is the most impressive. In a style of fantastic realism it tells the story of a flying fish’s voyage of discovery as it frees itself from a stone sphere and explores the world outside – a trip that quickly turns into a cosmic search for meaning.
