A tribute to the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

During the events of June 6th, 1944, and the days that followed, 73,000 Allied soldiers lost their lives. To this day, more than 2,300 soldiers remain nameless.

As a tribute to the 80th anniversary of D-Day, I have endeavored to depict this important historical event in an original way. I chose to design and produce a 3D animated short to portray it. In the animation, we focus on the stories and experiences of the unidentified or ‘nameless’ soldiers. I developed this idea after seeing an unidentified American grave. On each grave of an unnamed soldier, you can read the epitaph: “Here rests in honored glory, a comrade in arms known but to God.” This text plays an important role in my animation. Alongside surrealistic elements such as a sea of dog tags and a gigantic parachute covering Sainte-Mère-Eglise, accompanied by General Eisenhower’s speech, I hope to depict D-Day in a unique and impactful way.
