From the machine (mild nudity)

From the machine

Originally, I was going to model several different locations from Alex Garland’s hauntingĀ movie “Ex-Machina” and render an animation (in the vein of Dannie’s Dream).

As it happened, I got distracted, lost interest, and the one set I modeled–the underground residential quarters in Nathan’s house–was so tough to render because of the many light sources and translucent glass that I gave up on the video.

What remains is this series of stills–test renders, really. I modeled the architecture and furniture based on stills from the film. The 3D characters come from a variety of commercial vendors. I published those shots on Instagram a while back, but given that I’m not going to work on them anymore, and given that Ex-Machina got an Oscar, I thought now was the right time to show them here.

I used Corona to render these. Hope you like them as much as I liked the film.
