World War - 3D Animation (Vincent Chai)

by R27 CREATIVELAB on Thursday, 9 October 2008

World War was created by Vincent Chai for his final degree project whilst studying 3D Animation at the University Of Hertfordshire.

Vincent took time out and shared a few words with R27. Have a read before watching the animation below.

As soon as he got the chance to create a film of his own, he said that "I wanted to include everything I had learned throughout the years in a 4 minute animation. Therefore, I started to construct a storyline with a simple anti-war concept inspired by a quote of Albert Einstein ''I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones''. In addition, I love to watch movies as well, so I put in many ideas that I had seen into the short".

He chose to create the animation with an oriental backdrop as the animation itself was too short to explain the back story, Vincent says that "I wish that audiences can relate to what has happened in the past right at the beginning of film".

Stills from the World War:

He's currently working as game artist and has a few stories in his mind, hoping to continue to produce 3d short films during his spare time and share to everyone.
