Private Project


In the animation “Deformed”, one head pleasantly talks to other heads. At first they are all happy, but suddenly, for no apparent reason, the head is attacked! His appearance changed forever.
We enjoy talking to friends, family, and acquaintances and we believe they enjoy our company, but one day we realize that someone close has caused us harm with ugly words. We may become strangers or even enemies, but there’s nothing that can be done to change things. We could become angry, be a monster and return the harm, but we can also look at ourselves and remain as we were. What would you choose to be?

Director Statement

The story is inspired by negative and strong emotions of anger, sorrow, and loneliness. In the past year, I was disgusted by the complicated and contradicted relationships among people and realized that problems could start easily just by a mistaken word. People refused to open their mind; they spoke out the hatred so loud, and hurt the feelings of their loved ones. However, there’s no certain resolution to these situations, and it might never be. Through this story and with all its surrealism and weirdness, I hope people who watch this film can think of the relationships between selves and others in different perspectives.
