“Senseless” Short Film by David Zamorano
Director/motion designer David Zamorano in London: “‘Senseless’ is an anti-war film inspired by various events in history and the story of Hiro Onoda, a Japanese soldier who kept fighting WWII alone on a Pacific island for 29 years after the war ended.
“The main creative challenge was to analyze isolation, war’s madness, and drama, all through an alternative narrative and image perspective.
“The chosen aesthetic was Brutalism and defensive architecture style, which informed the illustrations and scenarios by combining 2D animation and some 3D bits – all put together under a rough-illustration and frame by frame animation style.”
