Computer graphics arts such as animations, video games, and special effects in live-action movies have become essential for people seeking entertainment and education. This study aims to explore the potential for experimental film in presenting scientific theory as well as assessing different production strategies in 3D image creation. To invite people into some abstract or complicated scientific topics more readily, non-narrative film form is a viable method to relay this type of information. It's crucial to look at how independent filmmakers employ various ways to fulfill their particular creative purposes. I’ll be demonstrating how these processes worked in making my film, Discontinuity, a short 3-D animated experimental work that attempts to illuminate some of the mysteries of quantum theory for an audience. I plan to use my analysis of the film’s production time, the overall quality and the feedback it received to build ideas for future research as well as an overall vision for computer graphics arts.
