Paper Trail

My very first promo piece for my site Digital Black Book. Created at Somersault during some downtime. It started as an experimental animation. I was learning how to use particles in 3DS Max at the time and came up with this concept of a piece of paper that unravels itself until it explodes into the sky. Paper spawns out of paper.

In my original idea I was going to continue the animation by having the last sheet of paper fly up and fold back down into some origami paper crane which would then fly away. As if the entire process was giving birth to this bird... I was definitely not experienced enough to pull that off at the time. I did however get a bit of recognition for the piece. It was posted on several blogs and eventually picked up by Computer Arts for their cover disk.
