Voxel by Ubik

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

London-based directing duo Ubik have posted their latest short film, Voxel, up online. It was made for last month’s f5 festival in New York and features rippling water, rain showers and various organic shapes made from 3D pixels



“Our intention from the outset was to make something experimental, technically challenging, slightly ethereal and for reasons we can’t quite remember – they made sense at the time – set in an empty swimming pool,” say Ubik.

The piece was made at the request of Motionographer, the organisers of the f5 festival. “There was no real brief just a few reference words: ‘refresh, renewal, rejuvenation’,” say Ubik.

“We had been playing around with the idea of making a film using 3D pixels, or voxels, where we could describe and animate organic shapes and forms using simple cubes, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to give it a go.”

Ubik are represented by Not to Scale for commercials and music videos.
