Plot Concept: “HELLO WORLD” is an animation of a new view of the world that has literally never been touched by anyone. The visionary staff leading the modern image industry draw out scenes, scenes and scenes that everyone knows with visual beauty, stories and vectors that no one knows.
Waiting there is a sketch of the life-size pain, crush and heartbreak that everyone is experiencing, and a search for myself of a far-reaching scale that no one has ever experienced. Intertwined future and present, I, I, and Her, memories of the city, the last mission.
The birth of a new axis animation that starts moving when you pick it up. A new world opens up, here.
