SÖNGVAKEPPNIN

Söngvakeppnin or "The Song Contest" is an annual music competition organized by The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RÚV). It is one of the biggest programs they have each year. It determines the country's representative for the Eurovision Song Contest. Söngvakeppnin has consisted of a multi-artist competition, with between 5 and 10 songs competing.  The contest has consisted of 2 semi-finals aired before a grand final.

 

Autodesk Maya was my main software for this project. All the models were bought from Turbosquid except the logo that was designed by Sævar Jóhannesson and modeled by me. Finally, the scene was rendered out in Arnold with the help of Zync, Google Cloud Rendering. It was then brought into After Effects for composition.

I also did the graphic for the LED screens on the stage for certain songs over the past few years. Here is one from 2018 when Robin Bengtsson came as a guest star to sing at Söngvakeppnin. He ended up in 5th place with this song, "I Can't Go On". He was the representative for Sweden in Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
