Paths were generated using the the Formula Spline Object, lights aligned to said splines, and camera moves generated using CS Tools EasyCam and DocuCam. Then all that fun stuff was imported into After Effects and made the lights particle emitters. Add some carefully placed Depth of Field, and you’ve got yourself a minimalist piece worthy of Max Richter, who coincidentally composed the song Fragment, used in this video.
