Cyberpunk City (Cyberpunk Shanhaiching Short Flim)

Hi guys,this project is a motion response that I made for Pause Fast this year. It describes the cyberpunk world in China in my mind.
Our ancestors always record the unknown gods and demons in the books, they named them, remember their deeds, passed down all this from generation to generation for thousands of years.
When the technology developing day by day. when the powerful technology mastered by mankind. Those gods and demons that were once mysterious and ancient are also can be bred by science and technology.
The mankind can be divided into good and evil. When technology mastered by different people, they created gods and demons in the robots,this world may be changed into another world.
This video wants to give you some thoughts. When the new Odyssey of technology comes and the technology is mastered by different people, this will make the world better, worse, or unchanged. How should we deal with it?


Wa(魅)
Wa is a monster from the traditional Chinese story of shanhaiching(山海经海内北经),i made it look more like a monster in the future world


MengTu(孟涂)

Haha, I have seen works with Chinese elements, but the ones that can represent Chinese elements are not necessarily shown in red. I recommend you to learn about Chinese culture.

I am so happy to see some works special for Chinese cyberpunk world. I think maybe you can add more Chinese elements in this work apart from some dynasty things.

What a complete and fancy work! I think the idea of dynasty is very good, and it reminds me of the four seasons in real world.

Looks incredible. What program and render engine did you use for this? How long did it take and how many people worked on this?

I like it strongly. Too much hours of hard work in it sure

When you mention :
