Tribute to “Evangelion” Anime by Somei

This spectacular new personal project from Shanghai director/motion designer Somei Sun was inspired by his childhood obsession with the critically acclaimed Japanese mecha anime TV series Evangelion.

Somei: “This year, the final theater version of Evangelion will be released. The core purpose of this film is to try to make the EVA world real.

“There is a saying in the EVA movies that I really like “梦是现实的延续,现实是梦的终结”, “Dream is the continuation of reality, reality is the end of dream.”

“We live in such chaos, a chao-real world. But no matter what kind of disaster we face, we can still smile, connect with each other, and give each other strength.”
