Gas Mask X is a 21-minute psychological genre, short narrative film by Yoon-ha Noh that was completed and premiered in November 2012. The film is about a character, Gas Mask X who carries the guilt and trauma about his mother and father's deaths. Gas Mask X's mother died when she was giving birth to him, and his father committed suicide in front of him when Gas Mask X was only 10 years old. His horrible memories have continually `suffocated' him, so he has worn a gas mask since after the death of his father. Gas Mask X reveals how the main character has suffered and continues to suffer in his life and what he decides to do about this to end the suffering and redeem his innocence. This paper discusses the intention and original concept of the film, as well as the processes for producing the film from pre-production to post production.
