A book breaking down the process and research of a frame by frame animated story about China. It packs six months of work in China into a collection of thoughts, ideas and history. The book consists of an animation history breakdown with focus on China and loops in animation. Insights into Chinese architecture, culture, religion, painting, language and harmony of humans and nature. And a detailed description of the thought process behind each animation and the entire project.
In addition to the eleven hand-drawn, animated loops the shortfilm also contains hand-drawn intro and credits. All made frame by frame.
A detailed description of each animated loop is currently only available in German as an excerpt from my thesis. If you are interested in a pdf or English translation, feel free to contact me via email, I'm happy to send it to you.
