Music video This Empty Town

After the severe flood and tornadoes, on top of the COVID-19 affects , Quảng Nam as well as many central provinces in Vietnam is in great destruction. The animation with some aftermaths scene from Hội An ancien town and An Bàng beach brings some message from the reality but also creates a poetic and dreamy beauty in abandoned places.

Any typical Viet boat has 2 eyes to scare the monsters under water and get the support from dolphin or whale

I’ve just got a stuffed can of Viet root beer (la recinette) so I decided to make a 3D model of it. Sá xị is the childhood drink of many Saigonese but unfortunately the local beverage brand can’t compete with giant corporations invading Vietnam lately. I downloaded the can model from Sketchfab and remade the cover in Photoshop with reference from Sá xị can available online. Then, I put the 3D model in a tropical scene with banana 🍌 and coconut 🌴 trees in Unreal for the countryside feeling or at least the pre-urbanization life I grew up with.

You can download the model on my Patreon.
