Tima Vlasto, did the VFX for “Red Lion” and compiled these AE project files for you to use freely.

RED LION by Oh. Olivia HadjiioannouRED LION

A numinous Red Lion illuminates the path the warrior goddess Metallia must take to align her fragmented selves and restore an ever-present multidimensional vision long lost to humanity.

Director/composer Olivia Hadjiioannou (aka Oh.) presents a consciousness-expanding visual and acoustic odyssey. Avatars, griffins and multidimensional mathematical objects inhabit this psychedelic landscape.

Inspired by scenes from Federico Fellini’s, “8 1/2”, Lewis Carroll’s, “Alice in Wonderland”, Maurice Sendak’s, “Where the Wild Things Are”, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s, “The Little Prince” and ancient Greek myth.

“Red Lion” is the first in a six-part series of animated music videos by the multi-instrumentalist, Oh. for the progressive metal album, “Metallia“.

Animation and VFX

The Making of Red Lion

It would have taken us many months to create the 5 minutes of animation for Red Lion if it weren’t for the incredible Mettle 3D plugins for Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Adobe Fuse for the 3D models and the free animations on Adobe Mixamo. These plugins and resources made it possible to complete the 5 minutes animation in less than 200 hours.

We are very proud to say the video was #MadeWithMettle. The plugins opened up so many creative possibilities and we were blown away by what beautiful scenes we could create and make what we imagined a reality.

Mettle Plug-ins

Mettle’s Mantra VR is a comprehensive set of 16 stylization effects that work in both 360/VR and 2D, for After Effects and Premiere Pro. In “Red Lion” we used Circular Waves, Esher Droste, Hyperbolix, Mobius Raw, Repeater and Turbulence effects. We also used the Mettle Flux plugin which creates 3D volumetric fractal flames and the FreeForm Pro 3D Mesh Warp plugin that creates terrain, morphing organic shapes, an array of primitives, water simulation and character animation. For a few effects we used Mettle’s Shapeshifter AE plugin that creates 3D morphing shapes.

“If you put Kate Bush, Auf Der Maur, Ayreon, Chiasmata, Igorrr, old White Zombie and Amogh Symphony in a blender with several metronomes running different time signatures, add a healthy dash of thrash riffs to the proggy mix and baked the resulting mixture for several hours you probably wouldn’t even come close to the sound.” – Lee DavidsonProg Metal Madness
