3-Wall Video Projection | Cinema 4D, Adobe After Effects

"Shanhai" in Chinese means "Mountain Sea". The environment and creature designs are inspired by the mythic geography and beasts from the Chinese book "Classic of Mountains and Seas". The video follows a flying fish and presents a non-linear story through its eyes. This is meant to be a nonsensical meditative experience that puts the audience in a mythical world.

Re-colored the project to give the landscape an errie visual, re-edited animation clips to condense 3-panels into 1 for monitor display.
