The work uses several projectors and 3D animation should be clear and dynamic.
Therefore, only on November 14, the artists shared with the entire planet an original creative experiment, publishing it in the Internet. And Verba managed to combine the art of shadow theater with the capabilities of 3D graphics and visual effects. Even watching the setting on the screens of monitors – you can not miss the volume of the figures.
