Mountains and Seas by YidanXie

The Mountains and Seas is an independent animation. The inspiration comes form the Chinese book “Classic of Mountains and Seas”, a compilation of mythic geography and lore. In this book, there is a huge number of mythical beasts living in this fantastic environment. After reading, I took the method of mythical creatures construction and utilized it to create my own mythical beasts; as well as many fantastic and dreamlike environments like “solar smelter” and “crystal dreamland”  which also generate a series of the narratives and story. The sound in this animation is original done by myself. It is not only a background music but also a narrative tools which provide information and detail about this fantastic world. ~YidanXie
