Sagada Rice Terraces (Shinkai style exploration)

Here's a collab work with Sir @bricxmartillodumas, an environment six seconds animation study exploring Shinkai's style.

I asked him to have his permission on using his raw photo of Rice Terraces taken in Sagada.

The process was painting first, then add different animation techniques from sunray to foliage swaying, adding subtle details of rice and fog in the end.
The whole animation is 4k size in portrait.
Working time was almost a month but every weekend.

I converted it to a live photo to see how it looks in the iPhone lock screen. Unfortunately, the iPhone's algorithm is keeping it into low resolution when playing. I'm still looking for a better solution to this part.
