Betrayed by the gods, banished from the world away from both - living & dead, into the void despite proving paramount loyalty to them.
It's been a millennium, and tremors of the Gods returning to the new world reached through the depths of the universe, even in the void. Null has been awakened from eternal sleep and is up to something, INSANE.
SEIZURE WARNING, AVOID WATCHING IT IF YOU'RE AFFECTED BY VISUAL FLASHES.
NULL is the definition of breaking all bounds, while ironically being stuck in a monochrome world. Identifies as a non-binary being, a shape-shifter who marched the ancient world, claiming triumph on behalf of Gods But why is ∅ so disrupted?
∅ portrays turmoils of being unique - struggles to prove, the voices of doubt constantly screaming loud in the head that can make you go insane. But something has changed. Betrayal sparked a flame that continued to spread within. ∅'s hungry for redemption.
The piece briefly touches upon emotions & experiences that people often face in society - twisted to fit the fantasy world. Pain, uncertainty, loss, battle, overcoming, we've all felt a bit of those at some point. Every element is on you to resonate with. Which ∅ are you?
This character concept came with its own surprises. Animated and rendered in Cinema 4D. The model itself had compatibility issues when animated on top of fractured pieces. The glitches you see in the render are partially aggravated by the issue, I consider it a gift of justice to the concept.
The audio needed to be just as chaotic as the idea, choices in editing were completely out of my comfort style but left me with lots of lessons. The final piece was composed in After Effects.
