A video panning around the mud mound, with some mist effect added in. Mist isn't consistent when it's that close to the ground in real life, and is dissatisfying that way; so the mist layer was piped through a 3D animated gradient noise to give it texture

A second render of the video, without the mist, to put attention on the mound itself

Basic technique for the mist composition, with the offset driven by the world location of the camera
