I developed these visuals inspired by the fascinating English forests, the endless ancient trees and the overlap of ruins, pathways, and moss.
I designed the environment using Unreal Engine and Quixel Megascans. After setting up the camera and animating the movement, I painted over every shot, frame by frame in Photoshop. Next I played with each clip inside After Effects, editing and using different effects combinations until the mood of each clip reflected the main idea and mood.
