One of the coolest parts about Mograph Mentor is the artistic vision that each student infuses into their projects…because there is so much diversity!
Wolfram’s vision for his Visual Essay was certainly unique:
“I choose to make a fictional explainer on how to raise your robot. This originated from the idea that if AI is anything human-like, it probably has to be raised. And when the robot doesn’t do everything perfect from the beginning, there might be a couple of inconvenient situations. But in the end does this lead to a more personal bond with the robot? This project was a first time for a lot of stuff: first time rigging, character animation and real compositing, but I learned a lot!”
Enjoy some of the pre-pro concepts from Wolfram, and don’t skip the making-of video at the bottom!
Big thanks to Wolfram’s mentor, Ryan Summers!
