“It is the adventure of a little boy. A stubborn boy, a different world, a severe warning, and an unknown destination. Who will he meet on his journey? and what is he truly looking for? He tries to turn back time, but fate seems has a different plan...”
The project made by a team of three students from Tisch School of the Art of NYU, among three months. Oblivion is a 3D Animation Project made with multi-software including Cinema 4D, Motion Capture and AfterEffect. Oblivion is not only a traditional animation work, it blends both technologies and art into the animation smoothly. Our team also used motion capture technology with Tisch dancer for complex movements of the character instead of manual animation.
