This is a senior project of Galina Bovykina, one of my good Visual Effects friends at Savannah College of Art and Design. In this project, she wanted to recreate a meteor that landed in Russia in 2013 as a music video for the song Sgorayu which means “I burn” in Russian.

I have been helping her with the project for photo-scanning people, creating the crowd shot in the music video, and solving any problems she might have with Houdini.

You can check out the following blogs for our approach to photogrammetry people using Gaussian Splatting and simulating crowds.
