“The Faults” Short Film by Gao Yang
Using noise algorithms to drive the motion of his latest short film, Beijing designer Gao Yang creates a mesmerizing and abstract third addition to his “Mountains & Rivers” series.
Gao Yang: “For me, mountains are huge creatures on a scale of billions of years, and with this work, I want to present a fast-forward look at the changes in these mountains, not only in the form of growth but also in the form of fractures and destruction.
“Also, this work is an exploration of how to achieve rougher yet expressive brushstrokes, blooming, and “Cun” – the brushstrokes used in traditional Chinese landscape painting to express the texture of mountains and rocks – through Octane Render.”
Director/animator: Gao Yang
