NOWHEREMAN

My graduation film project NoWhereMan is a 5-min long animated short film.  I'm the director, writer, concept designer of NoWhereMan, and in the production stage, I was also responsible for the environment modeling, Cha & Env & Prop texturing. 

 

The story is about a national hero who was sacrificed by the government and the masses. The story follows a marshal who announces their first time travel experiment to the public. However, the experiment goes haywire when the main character gets trapped in the repetitive timeline forever. Behind this shallow success is an ironic truth.

 During the production, I got great inspiration from Lucian Freud's paintings. I applied the vivid characterization and expressionist feeling of the characters in his paintings to our design.

Here are some concept art, style frames, and pre-production research I've done for this project, hope u guys like it!.
