Digital Animation – Nguyen Thi Kim Cuong



Project Description

ManMade follows the journey of a young boy into the deep as he finds out about the adaptation of sea creatures in response to pollution and environmental changes. Comprising of a team of two, the work combines live action with 3D-generated characters, and is the first underwater VFX short film done by ADM’s Animation students. Inspired by the short film “Factory Fifteen”, the entire film  primarily consists of underwater scenes, which visualizes the impact of the environmental change, and is hoped to be equal parts informative as it is entertaining.
