Dokebi is a 7 week group project generated for the MA Digital Effects at Bournemouth University. The story is set in 1930-40's. Every night a small boy goes to the attic to read stories to Dokebi, his wooden owl friend. The owl picks a book and they both share thoughts until they fall asleep.

The filming was done against a green screen, with the boy and the furniture. The owl was modeled, rigged and animated in Maya, textured in Mari and lit and rendered in Houdini. A matte painting of the attic was generated in Photoshop and implemented into the shot. All the shots were composited together in Nuke.
