Views of China – Animation

Eleven hand-drawn, animated loops shaped into one film that describes the China that I have experienced. Beautiful aspects, but also points of conflict. Each one with a unique, individual concept.

Immerse yourself in a strange world. Experience China in a new way and join me on my journey of living in a Chinese city with 24 million inhabitants for half a year. 

A small insight into this huge, fascinating world. The shortfilm is also the final part of my Master’s thesis (at University of Applied Sciences FH Joanneum Graz, Austria).

 

Animation/ Art Direction:   Christian Leban
Music/ Sound Design:        David Stockinger
University:                       Master's thesis for University of Applied Sciences FH Joanneum

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.

In addition to the film there is a book which brakes down the entire process from research to the final animations. It packs six months of work into a collection of thoughts, ideas and history.
