Story

When you’re 4 inches tall, a puddle becomes an ocean and a hill becomes a mountain. Introducing Tom – a happy-go-lucky forest gnome whose silly stunts always lead into trouble. When Tom’s little brother goes missing, Tom is faced with the challenge of a lifetime: a journey far, far from home.

Tom’s quest takes him deep into the wild woods, in the midst of wolves, foxes, owls – and finally the most dangerous beasts, humans. This adventure teaches Tom the true meaning of honesty and friendship.

Production

The Gnome uses a mixed technique of filmed UHD video combined with 3D animation, to produce a photorealistic environment and realistic look and feel.

The animations are of superb quality, to create an illusion of actual, real-life gnomes with human feelings, thoughts, skills, gestures, strengths and weaknesses. All this in a miniature 4-inch body and with a life expectancy of 400–450 years.

Our use of mixed technique has been widely acknowledged. The Gnome received the award for the Best Technology in the Seoul Promotion Plan 2012 Project Competition.
