Nowadays, 3D techniques play an important role in the reproduction of history and culture on screen. Modeling and 3D visual effects, using technical tools and other computer methods to achieve high returns from the movie industry, have become prominent in today’s technological trends.

Taiwan has always been identified as a province of China. The island nation, however, has its own unique culture and history. With the growing number of people emigrating to Taiwan annually, the opportunity to share our story has grown as well. In this regard, the 3D technique offers useful ways to bring the past back to life, discover the identity of a place, and tell a country’s unique story.

This thesis project is a 240-second film created by using the 3D application Autodesk Maya and the visual application Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects. The film shows the real beauty of Taiwan and its unique architecture.
