An animated epic fresco, from medieval rural to urban in the future

Post by iSiZ

Babel is an animated epic fresco, which tells the story of two characters, their personal lives against the backdrop of China’s historical progression, from rural to urban. Produced by Studio Hdk Productions based in Paris.

At one point the main character travels by train, the landscape transforms from a medieval rural village setting to where he arrives, in the future.

It was filmed in Shanghai, but most work was done behind the computer, compositing. This epic collage is a must see. You can watch the full length 15 minutes here. Also watch the director Hendrick Dusollier get interviewed in the following video.
