3D Animation for Energy Reduction Campaign

Abstract

Recently, every country has been using technology for manufacturing and agricultural development, including creating various convenient facilities to satisfy human needs. Existing energy has been very much been used, for example; electricity, oil, etc. and soon run out. The careless use of energy, lack of knowledge of energy, overusing energy can have devastating effects on ecosystems and human lives such as geography, climate, etc. In order for realizing the value of energy, using energy efficiently, encouraging and educating youth about proper energy uses, this research of 3D Animation for Energy Reduction Campaign is created and distributed to the youth. The animation is created in the form of video format and has animation process as follows: 1) Pre-production: problem defines, story board, turntable animation and backdrop design 2) Production: 3D model character, shading and texturing, light and shadow, rendering and editing and 3) Post-production: research validation by experts. The research of 3D Animation in the form of video format was one of the successful ways to promote uses of energy and energy reduction campaign and it was found that the youth understood and perceived what the animation was trying to tell them very well.
