Synopsis

The protagonist of Harvest is a grasshopper. In the early autumn, insects in the garden scramble for food. These small and tenacious creatures have experienced the blessings and hardships of spring, summer, and autumn but now they have to race against the clock to be fully prepared to survive the winter. The whole film, with no dialogue, highlights the roles’ emotional expression, action design and rhythm control by showing the strife among insects in a garden which depicts the "law of survival", thus reflecting the profound philosophy of nature. Harvest,the first 8K Chinese ink animated short film, has made multiple innovations in production technology, the audio-visual language of animation, artistic expressions and animation performance. Harvest is for the first time combines the techniques of "meticulous brushwork + freehand brushwork" in ink painting with 3D animation and 8K imaging technology. It integrates innovative ideas into Chinese traditional ink painting, thus producing new contents and forms through the combinations of different elements.
