Allen Zhang: To Be Great Trailer01:01

As Elon Musk launches his mission to Mars, Trump announces the formation of Space Force and China broadcasts new narratives of industrial dominance, technology, politics, and fiction are merging together. In this context VFX, concept art and worldbuilding have become critical acts of propaganda. 'To Be Great' is a new propaganda film from the United Republic. The government is presenting the design and animation of a speculative nation-building mission to send astronauts to Saturn and Titan. (Film by SCI-Arc Fiction & Entertainment student Allen Zihan Zhang)
