The Unit X9 course at Softbiome enhances students' digital design skills by guiding them in creating a short film, clip or sequence.
Unit X9 emerges as a natural evolution of what Softbiome is known for: the design of digital worlds.
This is why we believe the long-format course is an opportunity to go even deeper technically and to nurture the process even more, so the end result materializes in a project portfolio that serves you to start your career in digital design or to show around in job interviews.
Unit X9 students have to choose between two different themes: cinematics or interaction.
In X9-Cinematics, students will design architectures and environments that enables and supports time-based stories, ideas or concepts through the lenses of aspects related to visual storytelling and using animation, camera work, composition, lighting, dynamic materials, simulations and many other time-based effects that support the production of a short film, clip or sequence.
In X9-Interaction, students will design experiential metaversal spaces in the digital realm by implementing interactive elements in a playable environment, which allows users to control and manipulate architecture.
This can also be accomplished through our design methodology, which focuses on building a metaverse.
These projects will involve designing an application with a playable avatar, interacting with events/triggers, employing procedural modeling with Houdini Engine, utilizing responsive-kinetic architecture, embedding UI interfaces and offering an independent VR experience.
