Snow 002

Snow doesn't just fall from the sky, it also swirls up from the ground. Add some eerie life to your wintry wastelands with some smoky, blowing tendrils of snow or, turn it brown and make it sand.

Inspiration

"Giant Bear" is an epic film set in the expansive, snowy landscapes of the great Canadian North. Even though it is a story about a lone hunter facing off with the last of the Giant Polar bears there is often very little movement. This is a story that is as much about the land as it is the Hunter and the Bear. These blowing snow elements were essential in reinforcing the living character of the land.

Quick Tip

To help place the blowing snow into your scene without intersecting with other layers, use the "Fill" effect in After Effects to make it a lot easier to see. We also use this technique to tint the blowing snow to blend better into the background after it is positioned.
