Moana The combination of Moana and Maui is born through the delicate touches of the world's best animators and tens of thousands of simulations.
“Moana (2017)” will be aired as a special film on mbc at 8:45 pm on the 16th. Disney Studio, which has always produced a lot of fans through lovely and realistic character design, attracted audiences with the Moana & Maui combination this time. The characters in the movie were actually created after hundreds of photos and tens of thousands of design simulations taken on site, based on the inspirations the crew received from the residents of the Pacific Islands. In order to express the wet hair of the movie'Moana' as the background of the sea, we wet and simulate the hair of people with similar real hairstyles, or the Disney's own animation system for 6 months to develop the technology to express water. It has gone through hard work, including development. Through this process, a confident and lovely character named “Moana” was born. The real image of Hollywood charismatic actor "Dwayne Johnson" played a part in the character of "Maui", a hero in Oceanian mythology. The production crew projected his charms, such as Dwayne Johnson's solid body and confident speech, onto Maui characters. The tattoos around the body started from the idea of production designer Ian Gooding. "Maui's tattoos are inspired by traditional tattoos from Marquesas Island, Polynesia," he said. Maui's tattoos are delicately arranged, depicting his proud achievements on his belly and chest, and his painful failures on his invisible back. Through the delicate touches of the world's best animators and tens of thousands of simulations, a very special combination of “Moana” and “Maui” was created. The most striking thing when looking at'Moana' is the fantastic sea, real nature, and realistic characters. John Musker and director Ron Clements, who achieved a new era in hand-made animations such as and , embraced CG animation in . Director John Musker said, “I used CG animation to effectively express the sculptural features of the island, the horizon, the mountains, and the characters.” I worked with more colorful colors to save,” he said. Especially, as the Pacific Island is the background, the main background of the movie is the wide blue sea. For the visual of the whole sea, the production crew expressed various appearances of the sea, from the open beach to the sea as a character that communicates with Moana. In order to realistically represent the water, a system was established to set the height, speed, and direction of waves, and to describe the buoyancy of the sea on which the ship is floating. Production designer Ian Gooding said, “We designed the waves in consideration of the types of rocks that make up the rain, volcanoes, and even sand,” he said. In order to realize the transparent sea, he did not hesitate to experiment outside the studio and experiment. The production team, who created a mini-sea of about 15 meters, conducted underwater photography in three types of water. Through this special experiment conducted at Van Nuys' swimming pool in Los Angeles, Mission Bay Marine Park in San Diego, and Bora Bora Island, the crew was able to improve understanding of the color and clarity of the water and the refraction of light on the sandy beach. The blue sea of , which was embodied by adding thorough preliminary exploration, technical skills, and unique experiments, caught the attention of the audience with its wonderful transparency.
