The Art Approach

The color scheme and overall red toned colors, were purposely designed to give a dark, post apocalyptic mood, thus having the viewer experience it instantly from beginning to end, while the presence of a destroyed civilization is portrayed .  Set in a dystopian future in which humanity is unknowingly trapped and brainwashed inside a simulated reality, the film is highly influenced under the cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction.

 

Breaking down the character

Dr. Yen Lo is based on the titled character of the 1962 film “Manchurian Candidate”.  This was the leading source of inspiration of the track by EPLKT as well as the CGI film, which was interpreted and personified into a more modern sci-fi version.
