This animation was a part of the Major project of the Media Arts Degree at UNSW and took around 3 months to complete. All the aspects of this animation including modelling, texturing, lighting, rendering and compositing are done by Aadesh Kanda.
“Re-Life” The project started with an idea to show “how covid-19 has impacted people’s lives physically, mentally, socially and in future “New Normal” will be even more tech-driven and provide much more significant challenges”. The film revolves around the plot “Future where human society is transformed by harsh biological realities and civilisation has shrunk to a few scattered, encapsulated communities clinging to the memory of greatness after pandemic COVID-19 and humans’ consciousness has been trapped in a cheap mechanical body,” due to the aforementioned reasons. Focuses on how, following the Covid-19 outbreak, humanity can once more become slaves to manufactured objects like artificial intelligence. In order to convey the harshness of machines towards nature, the design concepts juxtapose the situations of the machines and their surroundings.
