One of my very best friends, Jørgen Håland, who just happens to be a prodigy with a mouse and a wacom pad, just finished another of his short films, working in Cinema4D and After effects to make this beautiful room of classic furniture pieces. If you like what you see, have a look at his Vimeo page, which has plenty of nice things of all genres.
I asked him what the idea behind whas, and this is what he said:
The thought was to create a room, using natural light opposed to global illumination, with ambient occlution. After some research and modeling, it seemed classic furniture pieces would be a nice way to go. It became a bit “twin peaks”-like, with the dark drapes in the background.
Way to go Jørgen!
