This short film was completed as part of my 2017 Master's Capstone Project. My main focus was to show expressive therapy, or in this case Expressive Dance Therapy. We follow a dancer struggling with depression and through her movements works through it. All visual effects were created using Maya fluid and nParticles. Model was created using MakeHuman, rig was created using TheSetUpMachine plugin, and rendered using Arnold.
