3D Modelling and Animation
In 2020, COVID-19 is ravaging the world and seriously impacting our daily lives and economy in every aspect. By introducing Mr. COVID-19, I want to record this unusual period through this project. I came across an ETV program when I was in primary school. The story of the program, through anthropomorphism, introduced an interesting story about a kingdom of viruses where different viruses would invade human beings. The program was very educational and the characters in the animation were mesmerizing and memorable. In fact, it even made me sympathize with the viruses. In this project, I want to create a new character, i.e. Mr. COVI-19, in a similar style as those viruses in the ETV program.
The story humanizes COVID-19 and shows how Mr. COVID-19, the character, looks at the global epidemic in 2020. As a rejected virus in the world, Mr. COVID-19 is like a lonely person who has no home, no family, and no roots. It was born to be a ﬁghter, but for whom does it ﬁght? When there is no triumph, the only fate for poor Mr. COVID is to be hated and rejected, and even diminished by mankind.
