Silk Road

The Silk Road- A Journey/丝路-旅途

Silk Road: The Journey was my final animation project for fall semester 2015. It's about the Silk Road when Zhang Qian first started leading this tough journey across the desert through western Regions in Han Dynasty in ancient China. I used the technique of sand on glass for the entire animation. The sound of speaking voice in Chinese and the music played with Pipa are all done and recorded by me. To the beautiful culture of my home country.
