Logo animation and zero screen
The zero screen's visual style incorporates UMK's striking pink and purple branding, and was made specifically with TV broadcasting in mind - utilising the set camera perspectives to enhance an effect of depth within the screens.
The scene featured a subtle loop animation to act as a backdrop during host segments, as well as opening and closing sections to seamlessly transition the screen to and from other visuals. The logo was animated utilising particle effects. A video of the 3D stage simulation used for testing the scene can be found below.
Samu Haber - Syödään sieniä. (Interval act)
The demand made by Samu Haber in "Syödään sieniä" is straightforward - "eat mushrooms!". And so, the visual direction for the act was kept direct as well, unveiling a world of creatures sporting the most recogniseable fungus pattern - white and red.
The key feature of this project was customising preexisting animal models with hand-drawn mushroom patterns. This was done in Procreate, utilising its 3D model painting features. The various mushroom creatures were then animated with mocapped sequences and rendered in an assortment of loops and transitions. This facilitated easy assembly in post, allowing the animations to be accurately matched with the singer's performance.
Bess - Lähtee käsistä (Opening act)
Drawing inspiration from the neon cyberpunk aesthetics of Tron, the "Lähtee käsistä" visual set produced by Ari Levelä called for a seamless digital cityscape to act as a backdrop for a futuristic motorcycle getaway.
The animated loop consists of elements arranged on 3 planes - foreground, mid and background - with each plane moving at a different speed to imply depth and perspective. These visuals were also prepared with the TV broadcast point of view in mind, and a video of the stage 3D simulation for the set can be found below.
