How did you make this work:
The aim of this animation is to convey nostalgia for the summer days in the south of China. All the scenes and experiences of the protagonist are inspired by the memories of our childhood, recording the fading years and depicting the cultural landscapes. We combined traditional and digital animation, using Chinese ink painting for the background to create a stylish and subtle impression.
