In 2023 I was working on the VFX Design of the first German Disney Plus production with the awesome people of BTF (Bildundtonfabrik). I was developing the design for the show opening nebula and also made initial concepts for the final portal. Even if I couldn´t stay for the whole project due to colliding schedules, I am very proud that my design work is still clearly visible in the final production. Everything was done using Houdini with a bit of compositing in After Effects.

Various Design Explorations for the Nebula
The task was to visualize the clash of the forces of good and evil in form of a Nebula. This was approached through the use of color and light. Technically it was challenging to get the feel of scale without loosing readability.

Portal Development
The showrunners had the idea of an infinity sign and also a black hole in mind. The idea was to also show this in the portal that takes center stage in the final episode of the show. I explored various ideas and simulation methods in the early stages of development until combining them into a wild and bursting portal. The VFX team later pushed some of the initial concepts into the final look.
