Inspiration

In the vivid underwater scenes from "Giant Bear", our animated short co-production with Nunavut-based Taqqut Productions, a slumbering iceberg-sized polar bear -- the last one on earth -- must battle a lone Inuit hunter to survive. We used many of our underwater elements in these scenes, including these bubbles to create ambience, drama, and emotion with as little labour as possible. We hope they might add just the right amount of easy effervescence to your next production!

Quick Tip

You can use the bubbles as a displacement map so you can warp the background realistically behind the bubbles. Simply add the Displacement Map effect to an adjustment layer, then set the Displacement Map Layer to your bubbles layer. Keep in mind that the Displacement Map effect works best if you pre-comp your bubbles so they are the same dimensions as your adjustment layer. Adjust the horizontal and vertical displacement on the Luminance channel to your taste, and voila!
