Chinese art 2 – by ndR

On July 5, 2011, in Chinese Art, by admin

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I’m proud to present to you today my latest work.

It took me several months to achieve this project, with a huge inactivity gap in the middle – I just couldn’t give up and let the project die on my Hard Disk, this is why I had to rush the 2nd half of the movie.

Contrary to what the title says and what you could expect, I tried to break the stereotypes we all have about China, this is why you’ll be able experience a KZ movie with powerful music, but not mainstream.

I thought some RL footages could add a bit to the whole project, without being its main point, I hope you’ll also enjoy this side.

Contacts and other informations (e.g. Soundtrack) are at the end of the video.

I hope you’ll have a good time watching it, and feel free to share it around you if you think it’s worth it.
