PointCluster Plugin from hypoly_rnd on Vimeo.

Demo for my small free plugin to help with rigging objects, deformers and splines with point clusters. It’s a simple tool with an aim to speed up the process of setting up rigs like this when dealing with simple or complex animations.

Grounded from Kevin Margo on Vimeo.

One astronaut’s journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop.

Plastic Flowers Teaser from hiorganic on Vimeo.

Story concept:

If you’re alive, we are always having a deepest desire in our mind that is a silent space making us oxygen and breathing, which can present as narrow and limited corner. We chasing, run away from the reality, and struggling in our whole life, cause we do not want to face the fear and laid heavy burden on in our heart.

However, we truly understand we can’t run away from all of fear the world, which life is like a cycling, and non-stop whirling.

Therefore, people believe religion is a strongly conviction and loyalty way to protect there self even it just making s piece of the silence freedom imaging in their mind.

"If we losing any religions, which looks like we do not have freedom anymore, indeed that is the last wishes."

Could you telling me what is the different between human being and the death. Free from a body, people still trying to evade the reality, but back inside to the middle of heart, the religion is continuing slowly growing up and building it. Even feeble pulse, and the sounds grew fainter, I still telling myself, I believe I won’t give up for my life.

In the end, what about the most important hearts? Are you feeling alive or death?
