‘Rotation Method’ is a 3D animated short film. The film depicts a surreal journey by a traveler in a gold-plated racing helmet, accompanied by a dog with a phonograph as a head. The traveler’s journey brings him pleasure but at the same time places him in difficult circumstances and extreme conditions. As his companion, the dog is a symbol of friendliness and a metaphor for life; however, there is tension between the two. Despite this they continue on their journey, a cycle between life, death and an infinite journey.
