CGI **Award-Winning** 3D Animated Short: "Hewn" - by The Animation School | TheCGBros

  • Published on Nov 4, 2017
  • Watch this award-winning 3D animated short called "Hewn" as a wooden father struggles to support his metal child who consumes wood to survive. As the boy grows older so does his rate of consumption. The day comes when he brings their home to the ground, they have nothing left. Later, the father awakens in panic, his son is gone. He finally finds his son; eyes closed and furnace fire out. The wind begins to slowly turn a pinwheel the child holds. The father realizes something and begins working on the child’s furnace. As morning comes, a propeller spins within the boy. He opens his eyes, beginning a new life.

      @safin سَفِن hey, that was definitely one of our ideas when we wrote the story. However, as we went on it was starting to impede the ending of the story so we took it out. Its a pity because it would have been a great archetype to have in there (fathers representing the past sacrificing himself to create something new)
