This is a story about the eternal, never-ending miracle of life and death. The unfortunate death of a wild hare turns into a remarkable experience for a couple of children who find his little body. They feel obliged to solve this matter; therefore, they bury him in a playground. Once buried, the hare’s life gradually fades away and dozens of magical creatures that previously lived inside him have to abandon his body and anxiously search for a new home. The hare’s life ends by dissolving into nature, but is reborn in various plants and living things around.

I worked as a part of an in-house team at PetPunk studio in positions of a Technical Director and a CG Supervisor. I did various tasks including look development/RnD, vfx, animation, shading, lighting, rendering and some parts of compositing. My part of the production took almost seven months. It was a very tight workflow, but also an opportunity to learn something new and give it a try.

This film is mixed graphics, a combination of real photos and CG. 
"RunningLights" was premiered at Kino Pavasaris | Vilnius International Film Festival in March of 2017 and now is shown at film festivals around the world.
