We sometimes forget to save important files and lose the data. In the video, a character who loses his files gets mad and he is looking for a back-up data inside the computer. The back-up data got absorbed by the screen so he enters a computer world. He chases after the back-up data, going through all hardships in front of him but he defends well against the. After a few stages, he finally gets the back-up data and it begins to back up all his files.
The aesthetics of each environment should be abstract but also visually distinguishable and obvious at the same time. Three environments are ‘Hardware’, ‘Software’, and ‘Into the system’ respectively and each one has its own color scheme. The character named ‘Yuno’ is a reflection of me. While attending the school, especially working on this senior thesis, I always wore the same clothes — a hoodie, a cap, sweatpants, sneakers, and glasses — which made me feel more comfortable.
Hardware world shows the projects’ rendering, error and the steps of entering the digital world. The character is a reflection of myself, with the use of reddish tones giving unique color outlooks. By using the characters and colors representing myself the film illustrates my personal experiences showing a journey to find backup files from beginning to the end. A turning point for ever-changing color, from red tones to blue, as one enters the software world to recover backup files ultimately representing the inside of a computer. In a world of computers built with 0 and 1, and numerous pixel and wires, the character tries its best to discover backup files running through the digital world. In comparison to the real world, the density or animation moving speed of the elements are rapid and dramatic. Entering the system, an intertwined space, where all database is found in the digital world amidst numerous complex elements with the ceaselessly arithmetic operation and programs, we experience the most urgent and immediate feeling of the environment. In the space, characters run continuously struggling to get out of the maze. When he ultimately exits the system, the exhausted character takes a moment to breathe.
