Story Statement:

The idea of this project is to depict the manifestation of a child's imagination. The story centers around a child unable to fall asleep. As a result, he became privy to some shadows doing non-shadowy things. When he gets caught watching, his blanket ultimately protects him, and he ends up safe.

Technical Statement:

Some of the technical elements of this project are:

  • Cloth simulation for blanket
  • Shading representation of shadows
  • Particle effects for dissipation of shadows
  • Lighting for a virtually dark room
  • Motion capture implementation
  • Cheap-to-render hair simulation
