I learned animation in the school of animation funded by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas in England (Escape Studios) I am now certified Maya animator. My dream is to make an animation movie of more than an hour, and donate the yield to charity.
The film "2645 AD The Lost Civilization".
The film is based on facts from science, and suggests a number of intriguing questions. Children born in the 21 st century stand straight for the biggest test of mankind, are we actually smart enough to live on a planet without destroying it? Are greed, power and an unhealthy economy irresponsible for life on Earth? The story is told by two fictional alien personalities Anüron and Alohilani. Gradually, the dialogue between them makes clear what happened on planet Earth.

The bleak forecast came in a five-yearly report released by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. Climate change remained the biggest threat to the site, the report said.
But poor water quality from land-based run-off, coastal development and fishing also posed challenges, it said. "Even with the recent management initiatives to reduce threats and improve resilience, the overall outlook for the Great Barrier Reef is poor, has worsened since 2009 and is expected to further deteriorate," the report released on Tuesday said.
Greater reduction of all threats at local and regional levels was needed to stop the decline and improve the reef's ability to recover, it said.
'No quick fixes': The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral structure, rich in marine life. It stretches for more than 2,600km (1,680 miles) along Australia's eastern coast, containing 400 types of coral, 1,500 species of fish and 4,000 types of mollusc.
It is a Unesco-listed World Heritage Site, but in recent years the UN body has warned that it could be put on its World Heritage in Danger list because of its worsening condition.
Conservationists also fear that proposed development on the Queensland coast, including a planned coal port expansion at Abbott Point, could further harm its health.
In its report, the GBRMPA said that investment in some areas of reef management had yielded positive results, for example in reducing pollutant loads entering the reef.
It also highlighted examples of species that were making a comeback after years of decline, such as humpback whales and estuarine crocodiles.
But it said that climate change was already affecting the reef - causing coral bleaching and ocean acidification - and was "likely to have far-reaching consequences in the decades to come".
Just another cover story to promote GMO. ‘Experiments by British academics have found that GM insects could be used to wipe out fruit fly pests that damage crops such as oranges, peaches, apples and pears.
