Here you can find the plot:
In 2050, Earth is destroyed by a nuclear war, which determined the death of 90% of human race. Thousands of people lived inside fallout shelters for years, waiting for another chance. One of them is Adele Stein. After seven years spent in a bunker, she is torn away from her family, and brought to one of the few continents still liveable: Antarctica. What is left of the world, of mankind, is governed by the Oculus. President Nix is in charge of the antarctic outpost, and he wants the rules to be respected, no matter what. When Adele threats the president, he will banish her from the Oculus base, directly in the middle of the frozen lands. Almost dead, Adele will be saved by the Resistance, controlled by the officer Matthias Miller.

He will tell Adele the truth: they’ve been deceived. The plan was to reduce human population drastically, to start a mind control on all the survisors using a machine called Apeiron. Apeiron was developed by a scientist, Doctor Gregory Slate, who worked with his friend and business partner Scott Moore from 2016 to 2027. Dott. Slate told Scott that from the first time he was connected with the machine, he started to see someone in his mind. He said a young woman told him to destroy Apeiron before it was too late. When Gregory told Scott about it, Scott killed him and sold the project to a private society: The Oculus. But before he died, Slate left instructions to his daughter about how to build another machine with a frequency identification code. The Influencer’s frequency. Most of the people can only “fill” time. An Influencer can transcend it instead. People with this ability can control everything. The Influencer’s frequency, their vibration, is high and unique. Doctor Slate said the second machine would have been kept secret, until this woman would not have come. Adele has to find all the other Influencers, to protect them and to start, togheter with the resistance, the biggest rebellion ever planned.

QUANDO IL RENDER SUPERA LA TERZA DIMENSIONE!

Siamo arrivati a un livello sia tecnologico che tecnico avanzatissimo, le possibilità che abbiamo con gli ultimi software 3d sono illimitate. La qualità fotorealistica è alla portata di tutti, con un investimento minimo di software e hardware possiamo realizzare rese che fino a pochi anni fa erano possibili solo a grandi studi di produzione.

Quando si parla di un bel render, non basta solo sviluppare il lato tecnico della scena, dei materiali e delle illuminazioni. Ciò che fa veramente la differenza, ciò che rende un opera unica, è saper trasmettere una sensazione e creare una storia che faccia emozionare lo spettatore.
