“Causims” Simulated Microcosmic Nature Documentary
London 3D visual artist and animator Toby Auberg (aka Toberg) takes us deep into a mock nature documentary he describes as “an impossible microcosm generated out of simulated nature completely departed from reality.”
Toby Auberg: “Made with 3D physics simulations (dynamics) and procedural-generation techniques, in some sense Causims created itself.
“All these unpredictable elements were assembled into a self-contained microcosm that abstracts all of natures motifs and even its foundation: time and space.
“The sound design was approached first in stages, whilst the film developed. Key atmospheres, character sounds, and exotic planetary sonic textures were created before moving on to the musical elements.
“These were kept short and help set the emotional tone of the narrative, without overpowering the environments heard. The goal was to support the sound design, not to take lead.”
