SAFE HOUSE T, YAMATO WORKS, and TWR Entertainment collaborated on this video. Force of Will was originally a popular card game that got six short animation films, 15 minutes each. One of the projects within this series is the Monkey King teaser. SAFE HOUSE T joined the project early on during the pre-production phase. The project used Hong Kong neon lights street view aesthetic to set the tone, style, and textures. The environmental art and 3D textures follow this style. They use warm colors as their base and powerful contrasting values to set the mood.
