Stunning short animation 'Gloam'

Gloam tells the tale of a solitary creature wandering a dark forest who encounters something unknown, with only curiosity to lead the way. As soon as we saw this stunning short by David Elwell and Gareth Hughes, we fell in love with it.

The animation complements the beautiful storyline perfectly, with the character and environment design combining to create a darkly evocative atmosphere.

How they made it

David and Gareth filmed using a Canon EOS 600D with SteadiCam then created the animation using a combination of After Effects, Maya, Nuke, PFTrack, Premiere, V-Ray and zBrush. Take a look at the video below to see the character and shot breakdowns.
