Music video for Jetlagz takes the viewer on a crazy journey through the colorfull world of surreal fabrics and enviroments. Project was rendered on Octane in Cinema 4d, cloths were designed and simulated in Marvelous Designer, all composting work done in After Effects. Beside edit done by Wojtek Włodarski whole project was done by me.

ENJOY!
DESIGN
Project is a big visual experiment all done aftehours. Design and color develop through the video, starting from black and white through colors and ends up on gold. I had some attemps with more complex enviroments but I was so much in love with cloth movements that I finally decided not to turn away atention from it and stay wilth very minimalistic scenography. In the video you can find many visual refernences to works I realy enjoy. For example image below is a reference to my favourite music video Jamie XX - Gosh.   
ANIMATION PROCES
Almost all animation was done via motion capture data. Finaly the only keyframed animation was camera movements. On some stage I had an idea of making freez silhouettes of artists rotating along Y-axis but it did`t work well in the edit.
Due to lack of keyframes needed the main task was to figure out fast pipeline how to transfer data in easy way. Propably workflow might be easier but this is my way. Skinngin was done in Maya then mesh was exported via geometry mesh to Marvelous. After all fabrics work simulated cloth was transfered do Cinema 4d via alembic for the final render. It apears that the most efficient way was to take long takes on Mocap sesion to have more data on one loop.
