“0110” Short Film by Taehoon Park
In his new passion project “0110”, South Korean 3D artist Taehoon Park sweeps us into a grim tech-ravaged future where intelligent machines threaten what remains of humanity and one survivor makes his escape.
Park, currently a lead motion designer at The Mill LA, created the film for Gryun Kim’s online Asymmetry exhibition, the title sequence for which you should certainly watch here.
Taehoon Park: “The most difficult part of this project was the character animation. The concept completely changed in the middle of production and the character animation was the biggest reason.
“The initial concept was that the character would move a lot and required cloth simulation, so there were so many things to do – it wasn’t easy to get the job done.
“Then I took a break for about six months and eventually changed the concept to be easier and more efficient to produce. In the final version, the character is always sitting in a chair and most of the shots are close-ups, so I was able to animate it without difficulty.
“In addition, since most of the scenes are inside the car, I was able to add camera shake to reduce the awkwardness of the animation.”
