Project description:

At 07:49 in the morning of December 7, 1941, the forces of Imperial Japan attacked by surprise the North American naval base of Pearl Harbor, located on the island of Oahu, in Hawaii. This report reviews the sequence of events that occurred the days before and during the bombing that triggered the involvement of the United States in World War II.

Impact reached:

The piece was well received by the audience of La Vanguardia

Techniques/technologies used:

The 3D modeling of aircraft carriers, airplanes and maps and its subsequent 3D animation were used. Later, in after effects, the sequence of events and effects were established and finally the pieces were rendered in mp4 to sequence them in a scrolling on an html page in google amp stroies.

What was the hardest part of this project?

The most complex part was synthesizing all the events and documenting them correctly as they happened.

What can others learn from this project?

It is one more example of visual historical narration.
