The Instrument

In 2019 I had the chance to make VFX visuals for the movie The Instrument by Chris Hunt. Here’s the trailer:

The project is developed by using Unity game engine and the particle system is based on the Physarum behaviour. The movement of the particles is greatly altered by the sound to combine the sound and the visual into a new creature that is there as a whole.

I like to imagine the center as the heart of the creature, and it communicates through the ever changing web around it.

Sound design: Chris Hunt

You can checkout the website and imdb page of the movie. If you are in US, it’s available for streaming via Amazon Prime.
