“Nokta” — this short animated film is all about the creation, movement, and harmony of shapes co-existing in space. Filmmaker Onur Senturk describes Nokta, which means “dot” in Turkish, as an abstract film project that explores the improvisation of organic pieces within the themes of power, chance, and luck. The sound design in Nokta, crafted by ECHOLAB’s Gavin Little, is a piece of work in itself; it is in perfect unity with the movement and the transformation of the shapes. What is great about this animation is that it’s open to endless interpretations. Senturk says he used Realflow, 3ds Max, Mudbox, and After Effects to make the film.
