Rizon Parein Creates Fashion Sets Using CGI
Rizon Parein built a fashion editorial set for the autumn/winter issue of F---ing Young! mag using CGI.
Photographer Frederik Heyman contacted Parein about the project. "He's from my hometown, Antwerp, and we knew of each others' work, but this was the first time we collaborated," the artist explained. "He wanted futuristic scenes and I think that for a while now, [Heyman] has been attracted to the freedom and flexibility of 3D." Heyman went ahead with the shoot and afterward Parein studied the camera angles, creating shapes and grids around the images. Modeling was done with Cinema 4D and rendering with V-Ray.
For Parein, CGI means moving faster and malleable revisions. "It's a different approach and my intention is that the CGI goes unnoticed," he said, "but to be honest, I would love to construct [the sets] in real life as well."
F---ing Young! is a five-chapter-long, biannual men’s fashion magazine based in Barcelona. More here.
