"Life just have one direction: a line that goes from birth to death. The rest is embroidery."
"Line" is a full CG student short film we created for our master thesis graduation
in "Arts et Technologies de l'Image", at university Paris 8.
We did not try to create CGI human characters, so the foot (at 00:46) is the only live action element of our short film. Our goal was to suggest human presences through offscreen and sound design work.
We could say that 99% of the film is computer graphic made. We primarily used Maya and Fusion. We wanted to do in CG both hyper-realistic elements (sets / props) and other more graphic / poetry (the black characters)
