As a stop-motion animation, the film records the process of creation, which is played like a game. The wood blocks of basic geometric shapes such as circles, triangles and squares transform and combine with each other to form images, living creatures, man-made objects, landscapes and events. The director was inspired by the game process of toy blocks and jigsaw, which later triggered the start of this project.
06. INTO GREAT CIRCLES, 4’ 50’’
Direction by Joon Sung
Animation: Joon Sung
Music: Dylan Tinlun Chan
This piece was derived from the idea of extending the painting, used exclusively basic visual elements such as circles, to explore how those forms in motion can evoke certain emotional reactions that non-durative still images may not capture. The circular forms that I used here are the result of the distinct leaning toward the nature of purified art.

This piece was derived from the idea of extending the minimalist painting, to explore how those forms in motion can evoke certain emotional reactions differently from non-durative still images.

The short film INTRUSION does not tell a classical story. The main focus lies on the visual design, which has the intention to convey a mood. The motives and the associative dramatic composition are reminding of dream sequences, nightmares or hallucinations in which the uncanny and the curious are staged; Unrealistic, seemingly disparate, yet interrelated scenes that poke, like an intrusive recurring traumatic experience, into the mind of the powerless spectator.
