FAFA
"The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” - Alan Key
Fafa is it an experimental fashion film directed and designed by Bartek Kalinowski inspired by work of great educator and visioner - Alan Key.
Every day we become more an more dependent to technology. There are pros and cons of this fact. I strongly believie in science so I see more advantages. In Fafa project I wanted to give as much "creativity" to the algorythms and then pass it through my aesthtics, loop this process few times and see the results.    
Process
At first this project suposed to be simple photo sesion to promote model called Fafa. After few calls we decided to create fashion movie but idea about high quality still frames stayed in my mind. I decided to create very dynamic film with many radnom, different technics, procedural effects and hope that this will result with some interesting still frames. Whole process was preaty painfull and resulted with ą proximetly 100 different 3d renders. Finally many animations didnt get in to the movie or was visibile just for few frames but this was the whole idea. 

        
Frames animation it is a combination of sound effector, keyframe animation and jiggle deformer
Some of the elements finally not posted in the movie:
More than 100 animatons were prepered in whole process
Cloth simluations done in Marvelous Designer
All animation rendered in Octane for C4d:
Differential growth animations represent algorithm "art" - splines prepered in Houdini and than exported to C4d
Clouds prepard in Houdini and exported to C4d via vdb file format
Fashion
Hartwig Fashion Department took care of fashion idea:

"Model wears nothing but accessories, presented as works of art, who play the lead role in the film. Fafa becomes a metaphor. She changes faces, multiplies herself, blurring the line between photography and 3D motion design. Everything is an illusion. Anything is possible. Just as in today’s fashion, the interpretations can be endless. What counts is personality, style and unique character - fashion shows us unknown territories"
Story
I wanted to create storyline as simple as possible not to overtake the creative visual process. It is based on great TED speach of Alan Key - Ideas about ideas. Anyway story is on second or even third plan, project is mainly a visual exepriment.
