Han Dynasty

I’m excited to be helping young filmmakers involved in Jump Cuts make the animated part of a film about a wonderful exhibition at the Fitzwilliam in Cambridge.   The Search for Immortality is beautifully put together exhibition of tomb treasures from the Han dynasty.  The most spectacular object on display is the jade suit of armour, sewn together with gold thread.  Jade was thought to protect the body from decay and corrupting demons, I think the suit would also be worn in conjunction with 9 orifice plugs though, and this caught the young people’s imagination.   There were many fascinating objects and it was very enlightening.  The group are going to make a documentary film with fictional elements with Ryd Cook and Rick Harvey, and I will join them over half term to animate.  The group were so extremely sparky, I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
