Dell Seeing More | Houdini Particles R&D Process

  • DELL
    Seeing More
    (pre-production Houdini R&D process)

  • Onesal collaborated with Elastic in the creation of a series of films for Dell based on exploratory CG simulations to promote the release of their new Dell XPS 13 high end laptop.

    The following are R&Ds I developed as an assistant simulation artist on the Onesal team during the pre-production stage. Using SideFX Houdini POP Particles and rendered with Maxon Redshift.



  • I was very fortunate to have been in the studio seeing the project evolve from start to end.
    Thank you Onesal Studio for the valuable experience! 👍
