Rowan-Robinson notes “Not only is the piece lengthy, it’s also stereo, so the amount of rendering was doubled. We set about investigating different rendering engines and devoted time to optimizing our process to ensure we wouldn’t be held back when it came to iterating the lighting. Our experience in the VR field really helped us here, and the project in turn really cemented our VR pipeline too. Our team did a great job of ensuring the technical construction took care of itself, leaving more time for creativity.” The effect is spectacular 360º animation that combines the natural world and the material quality of newspaper into a unique virtual landscape.
