I love this, especially with the animated character. It looks so nice and “motionblurry”.
The activation sequence though, doesn’t make too much sense to me when thinking about the floor lights emitting/producing the whole thing theoretically.
Just a thought, what about getting rid of those floor lights, and in favor of the fx build some machinery at the sides, that would also explain the rays coming sideways.
Here’s a sketch to show what I mean, and an idea for an intro, so the device starts centric and then floats outside + up + rotating around center (= spiral movement) , while kind of webbing the hologram in the middle.
sorry, if this is impolite that I just jumped in here with this suggestion you didn’t ask for. I just really love what you did so far because it is pretty different and original, so i couldn’t hold my brain back from spitting out ideas for it.
