Description:


    This work is a 3D CG remake of a 1970s animated TV series, “Uchu-senkan Yamato”, using its famous theme song as the soundtrack. It is comprised of numerous scenes well known to its original viewers. This 90-second video is unique because it is exhibited on an LCD display inside the Japanese gaming machine Pachinko when the player achieves a high score. By creating almost every cut in 3D CG, we enabled both an HD version and a 3D version, which is intended for exhibition at events.
