Part of the TRUTH project : WWW.TRUTH.AF

In a world of fake news, alternative facts, and the Joe Rogan podcast, we find ourselves 'Wrestling with the Truth' on a daily basis. Hundreds of voices, both inside our head, and out, telling us what to think, how to feel, and what to say.
We question our instincts, second guess our feelings, and become increasingly susceptible to manipulation. 
Today's media & television continues to deceive the audience until we forget to question it's fidelity, accepting a dramatized reality as our new truth. 

Our minds, visualized here by a wrestling ring, are exhausted from the internal struggles of our thoughts, 
acted out here by our wrestlers. 
 
But who will win, and at what cost?

Process
The simulation consisted of 400 dynamically rigged wrestler actors, simulated with a PhysX ragdoll system in TyFlow. Rendered as VRay instances. Here are some initial proof of concept tests.
The dynamic actor rig allows for scene forces to affect the movement of bones, while a PhysX bind maintains the joint hierarchy relationship. Shane was also able to emit the dynamic actors like particles, and designed the wrestler to resemble Joe Rogan.
Alex designed the typography & monogram in adobe illustrator, inspired by the 90's WWF logos
