We love it when we find some Chinese-made animation that absolutely rocks our socks off and this 16-minute anti-war film definitely fits that definition. Made by an amateur CG hobbyist called “Jokelate” (饺克力) over the course of three years, it’s better than most of the things we’ve seen come out of the actual Chinese animation industry.
China Hush translated a Netease interview of “Jokelate” and his video, “See Through” (“打，打个大西瓜” direct translation is “Hit, Hit the big watermelon”). He was so dedicated to finishing this video that he barely left the house the entire three years he was working on it.
The finished product looks like it was three years well spent – somebody get this kid his own production company already!
