LONGSHI is a Graduate Thesis film, a M.F.A Thesis at the Rochester Institute of Technology 2009, made by Pei-Cheng Lee. LONGSHI is a story about a man in search of a legendary treasure which is very valuable in the historical record. The reality of this treasure is actually a trap set up by barbarians to attract the greedy. The film is a 3D computer animation, created primarily using Autodesk MAYA 8.5 for production, Adobe Photoshop, After Effect, and Premiere for pre and post-production. This film's technical aspects focus on texturing, lighting and compositing to represent an illustration-style animation. The following paper will describe its techniques and aesthetic concept.
