林沛儒動畫微電影《木箱子》滿足是一種幻覺 "The Wooden Box" and the illusion of fulfillment (中英)



那天我醒來,突然感覺房間整體感覺變得比習慣的大,只因為前一天我把房間裡的冰箱搬到外面去。突發奇想,我在 Threads 上面開始寫下我的想法:想像一個公司租給你一些木箱子,請工人辦進你家,擺得滿滿的,接著就讓你和這些木箱子生活個三十天,等到你習慣之後,工人再回來把它們移走。這樣不就可以讓顧客不需要在家施工或是丟掉東西還可以感受到那種喜悅?不錯吧?這個叫做木箱子計畫,更好的是,這種喜悅只是短暫的,一下子又回到原本的苦日子,所以一定會回來繼續使用這個服務,對不對?


One day, while tidying my room, a simple act of moving a small fridge outdoors led to a profound realization: the perception of space within my living quarters had expanded considerably. This moment prompted me to reflect on the concept of space and its intrinsic value.

Captivated by this notion, I penned down my thoughts on Threads, contemplating the idea of a company offering boxes for temporary placement in customers' homes. These boxes would serve no functional purpose beyond providing a fleeting sense of spaciousness, after they are retrieved after a month's time.


植物
冰箱原本在這,現在是植物。In the space once occupied by the fridge, there now stands this potted plant.

我最後沒有貼這章文,我把它複製下來放到電腦上去開始寫腳本。寫越多,我發現越多可以連結的想法,比如說,空位真正的意義,還有這些箱子代表著什麼,或是甚至,什麼。

開工前我花了兩個禮拜才寫完整個故事,生活中給了我更多的點子去連結上這一個故事。

接著就是編曲,寫稿,錄音,畫動畫,和做編輯。


Rather than sharing this concept online, I was compelled to channel it into the creation of a screenplay for a film. As I delved deeper into the narrative, I found myself exploring philosophical inquiries surrounding the significance of empty space and the symbolic potential of these wooden vessels.

Throughout the creative process, I remained mindful of crafting a narrative that would resonate with audiences, sparking contemplation long after the credits roll. My aspiration is for viewers to engage with the film's themes and continue to ponder the questions it raises even after leaving the theater.


 

滿足的幻覺 The illusion of fulfillment


這一個故事有很多的角度,但是它的大主題是在等化滿足感與一個暫時的魅影,深入探討人們,例如羽婕,如何被轉瞬即逝的解決方案或虛假的承諾所吸引,這些承諾聲稱可以滿足他們的慾望,無論是空間、舒適還是聯繫。但是這些幻覺掩蓋了更深層的問題和真相,導致依賴、操縱和剝削的循環。敘事強調了人類追求即時補救和逃避的傾向,經常忽略面對令人不快的現實或滿足對溫暖、聯繫和歸屬感的真正需求。


This theme explores how individuals, like Yu Jie, are drawn to temporary solutions or illusions that promise fulfillment of their desires, whether it be for space, comfort, or connection. However, these illusions ultimately mask deeper issues and realities, leading to a cycle of addiction, manipulation, and exploitation. The story highlights the human tendency to seek quick fixes and distractions, often at the expense of confronting uncomfortable truths or addressing underlying needs for genuine warmth, connection, and belonging.


 

木箱子電影海報


《木箱子》是我精心製作的作品,探索有限空間的價值與人的習慣。用 2D 極簡主義搭配鳥瞰視角去模擬一種觀看玩具屋的感覺。深信此作品將為觀眾帶來獨特而震撼的體驗。


"The Wooden Box" is a carefully crafted piece exploring the value of limited space and human habits. Using 2D minimalist style with a bird's-eye view to simulate the feeling of looking into a toy house. I firmly believe that this work will provide audiences with a unique and impactful experience.
