Animated The Scream 3D

(2017) This is my tribute to the Scream, by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1893.
The 3d scene matches the original painting very closely isometrically, but the background elements do appear much smaller with the added depth, which I ended up decided to use it for the zoom animation.
The animation is inspired by what Munch wrote in his diary on January 22nd, 1892:

"I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature."
