This was a project where I was experimenting with some new animation techniques. I have always admired white on white color schemes and animation heavily influenced by origami or paper. The concept was only to be creative and try new things. I chose to name it Vellum because that is the name of a unique type of paper. And because my primary influence for the project was origami and paper construction I thought it was very appropriate.
Most of the buildings are modeled after large landmarks. For example some of the models in the scene are the Golden Gate Bridge, the Patronas Towers, the Empire State Building, Big Ben, and Taipei Tower.
This was certainly a learning experience and I got some help from two good friends of mine, Sean Martin and Nick Schoener.
