For the electronic music one man band Particles Will Be Waves, we produced a short music video with a dreamy, vintage look and kaleidoscope images overlaying footage from a walk in the park.
The kaleidoscope effect was achieved in the open source 3D application Blender by recreating the actual workings of a kaleidoscope using Blender's built-in physics simulator. We created some shapes and gave it a glass material. Then filmed the rotating pieces through a mirrored tunnel with back-lighting, just as a real kaleidoscope would work. This footage was then cut up and edited to follow the electronic music piece.
