SQUIRT

 

Procedural Animation

 

CONCEPT

Mimicking the clouds of jellyfish in Jellyfish Lake of Palau, Squirt is the hero jellyfish for a larger crowd simulation using SideFX’s Houdini. Exploring the mechanics of jet propulsion, the jellyfish is procedurally animated to create more realistic local and global motion. The bell or hood utilizes a cloth constraint to create a more effective organic wave-like movement.
