This is the 3D animation film I am currently working on. It is part of my MFA Thesis. I will post segments of it in my demo reel soon.
Based on the story of American militant abolitionist John Brown and his pre-Civil War attempt to start a slave liberation movement in the Southern United States, this film deals with the controversial themes of American history: race, religion, and revolution.
When is resistance to an oppresive rule justified? Can religion inspire both liberation and tyranny? Does the right to resist differ from one group to another?
And what meaning does the connection and mutual work of three friends, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and John Brown, have in the larger context of American and world history?
