Infection by the Flu Virus

Infection by Flu Virus

The link to the soundtrack does not work, follow me instead.


  1. Hi Simon,
    I had a look at your presentation and it looks absolutely AMAZING!!!! Your description of the biological processes is very good and accurate. Your virus looks quite scary (although I am not entirely sure about the patterns on it, but I guess this is artistic licence). The whole concept is great and I can't wait to see more. I found the soundtrack a little bit intrusive at the beginning, but it then calmed down and now I think it is very nice. However, if you are planning to have a voice-over, make sure that the soundtrack is not too loud or distracting.
    Excellent work - this is exactly what I had in mind. Great JOB!!!!!

  2. Hi Si,

    Really like the soundtrack; it's got a bit of menace in there without being too doomy. Your storyboard was always clearly expressed. In a previous post you suggested that the textures on your existing models were just place-holders. This is reassuring because there's something very techy and glassy about your world in these renders, whereas your concept art suggested something more dissipated and painterly and 'street art'. There was a certain 'hairiness' about your digital paintings - a sense of bleed, and while I know that this is anti-Maya in many ways, it was certainly one of the strengths. I'm going to urge you to be bold in terms of stylisation; keep it going on; that's the thing about 'artistic licence' - it needs to be in all of it, otherwise audiences get confused or attach meaning where there's none (i.e. "So, sir? Is the flu virus really made of metal then... and so on").
