A dystopian sci-fi with alluring 3D visuals.
5/5

Review

Eunwoo Lee and his team of talented 3D artists have created a mesmerizing science fiction animation that immerses viewers in a haunting dystopian world. Set against the backdrop of a ravaged Earth, devastated by a dangerous contagion, the film tells the story of a manned-space mission returning to find their home planet in an apocalyptic state.

Produced during the COVID-19 pandemic, the film’s eerie atmosphere resonates with the current global climate, adding an extra layer of depth to the narrative. The visual beauty of the animation is undeniable, with the team showcasing commendable attention to detail in every frame. The desolate landscapes and crumbling communities are rendered with stunning realism, transporting viewers into this post-apocalyptic realm.

The music further enhances the film’s overall tone, contributing to its cinematic quality. The production value is truly top-notch, keeping audiences captivated throughout. While the dialogue is understandably limited, the storytelling is effectively conveyed through the stunning visuals and atmospheric soundtrack.

The short film’s quality is so high that it could easily be mistaken for a trailer previewing a full-length Hollywood blockbuster. The potential for this story to be developed into a wider feature-length production is evident, and it would undoubtedly be an intriguing expansion of the captivating world created by Lee and his team.

In conclusion, Eunwoo Lee’s science fiction animation is a visually stunning and thought-provoking short film. Its haunting atmosphere, remarkable attention to detail, and high production value make it a must-watch for fans of the genre. Highly recommended for those seeking a glimpse into an apocalyptic world.

Brief Synopsis

While the Voyager was leaving for an unknown space, mankind was wiped out by an unprecedented pandemic. Therefore, we couldn’t greet the Voyager, which returned with the long-awaited ‘alien signal’ after the pandemic hit. Changes are all around us, but sometimes we can always sense and feel them. Hopefully not all changes are like Gogh’s painting after drinking Absente.
