Here is the new corporate ident video for Soluble, produced as part of the process for the “Suggestion Box” app which I am about to hit the promotional trail for.
Its best viewed in HD (set it to 720HD in the pop up menu along the bottom.)
The sound is the bubbling of a river, slowed down to 1/6th speed, and the ping is the sonar from a genuine WWII U-Boat. Visually it is a number of different 2D layered elements, with a number of Vegas plug-ins used in combination with hand animation for bubbles etc.
The caustic animation (the “underwater” ripple) was generated by a PC app I found on the web, then applied as a blend layer. It produces repeating, tilable caustic textures at large resolutions (1024 by 1024 in this case) and was a great help for this project.
