World War Animation

"World War" created by Vincent Chai for his final degree project at the University Of Hertfordshire. The story takes place in the year 2045, one hundred years after the tragic atomic bombing of Hiroshima. An apparent new nuclear attack by the U.S. is thwarted, at least temporarily, by the giant transformer-style robotic tank of the Japanese. What ensues is a robot martial arts battle that would make the John Wu and Matrix fight choreographers proud. However, as with all wars, the end leaves no one the winner and all of us the losers. Poignant political commentary and a nicely done animated take on an old subject.
