UMK 2023

Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu

One of the most anticipated annual musical events in Finland is the selection of a performance to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest, taking place at Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu. It is televised live by Yle, the national public broadcasting company of Finland.

Following art direction by Ari Levelä, I prepared a variety of animated elements for two of UMK 2023's performances - the opening and interval acts - as well as the zero screen used as a stage background for host segments. All 3D work was done in Cinema 4D and rendered with Redshift, with Procreate used for custom texturing.
