Cornel Swoboda’s Remarkable CG Experiments Continue with “Damage State”

Cornel Swoboda, a 3D artist and senior designer at Jumbla Studios in Melbourne, Australia, describes his latest CG adventure as “a hallucinogenic cycle of damage, decay, and absorption.”

Cornel Swoboda: “I used scanned models of cars in different stages of decay and animated everything in Houdini. The hardest challenge I had to overcome was getting familiar with a new piece of software, and this is still an ongoing process.”

“Damage State” is the second collaboration between Swoboda and Jumbla’s sound director Sean Crowley following their striking and more intimate “Oligarchs” short released earlier this year:

Director/animator: Cornel Swoboda
Sound designer: Sean Crowley
