This gorgeous x-ray video goes under the skin to show a yoga body in motion.

It’s a beautiful and inspiring reminder that yoga isn’t just about flexible muscles, or weight loss, but is a practice that transforms our whole body – from bones to skin, tendons to ligaments. Enjoy!

Making Of:

Our goal for this piece was to create a realistic representation of radiological (x-ray) imaging.

Instead of just creating a still image, however, we wanted to combine the beautiful moves of yoga with this new visual approach to bring the full human skeleton to life.

Technical challenges included aspects such as achieving proper bone densities and representing actual bone marrow inside each individual bone.

Quick note: This is 3D animation (no use of mocap). No one was harmed, exposed to radiation, or grew a third arm.
