The annual Pause festival is the tech show for creative spirits. Visitors are invited per video clip, and this year’s invitation was created by seasoned Cinema 4D artist Brett Morris.
When the Pause festival coordinators commissioned the motion response for this year’s event, ten renowned motion graphics designers from around the world were in the running for its creation. For Brett Morris, the project began with George Hedon’s invitation to be one of these select few who had a chance of getting the nod. After accepting the invitation, Brett was able to let his creativity run free in realizing his vision of what the festival’s theme: Discover your future self.
The team with which Brett wanted to tackle the project included Patrick Goski, a digital sculptor, and Stephen Panicara, designer and animator. Brett and his team gathered visual elements for inspiration, which consisted of three main items: the Marble Canyon, Arizona, cliffs known as ‘The Wave’, a bust and a fluids effect. “During the design phase, a lot of what we had in our mind’s eye was doable but also presented major technical challenges,” remembers Brett. “But we knew from the start that our visual concept had great potential. It quickly became clear that the ‘wave’ formation would have to be constructed in 3D. We wanted to track a shot through the cliffs, which we wanted to depict with a highly stylized structure. We built the assets in Cinema 4D and shaped them using the Sculpt feature.”
