TXT “The Doom’s Night” by Studio Pivote
The five members of K-pop sensation TXT (TOMORROW X TOGETHER) battle “an unknown power” on the way to revealing each of their fictional backstories in this magic-filled adventure from the animation crew at Studio Pivote in Seoul.
Studio Pivote: “In the K-pop scene, sometimes idols have their own background story which is like a fantasy novel.
TXT wanted to show their own stories for the fans and this is the reason that the project was started.
“The thing that we mostly cared about on this film was how to express lots of set ups and the huge scale of the story while at the same time not missing the flow of scenes.
“The clients hoped to see an animation in which the main contexts of the story were implicit and figuratively shown. And we also would rather the animation would be the influential direction for the next project of TXT than express every single thing in one story.
“As we produced the animation, we used projection mapping to achieve organic camera moves and we made lots of effort to make it all look natural with 2D animation.”
