This stylised 3D illustration by Mikolaj Krajewski, tells an unconventional story in a classic fairy-tale setting. It follows an older woman who desires to be young again, she invents a youth machine to turn back time but things do not go to plan. The theme of vanity is introduced through the old fashioned, lavish environment which is contrasted by the machine. The project was inspired by styles from the 19th century and the steampunk sub-genre. I aimed to create a mysterious and humorous short film with a heavy focus on modelling, lighting and shading.
