CGI 3D Animated Planet Unknown Short Film by Shawn Wang. Featured on http://www.cgmeetup.net/home/planet-unknown-short-film/
At the end of the 21st century mankind were facing global resource depletion. Space Rovers were sent out to find potential inhabitable planets.
Planet Unknown is a passion project from director Shawn Wang. Animated over eleven months it was the final project for Shawn’s course at the Communication University of China. The attention to detail is exceptional with jaw dropping renders. Both the pace of the film and the use of shots is impeccable.
Planet Unknown recently won Best Animated Short at the Burbank International Film Festival.
It took around 4 months to build the 3D assets. Then Shawn moved on to animatic previews. Each individual shot got more clear and problems to solve became more specific. Then the rest of the time were mainly focused on building scenes, keyframe animation, FX simulation, rendering and compositing.
