It was a big responsibility for our animation studio. Hence we decided to create the maximum realistic pictures. We did know 3d or 2d animation was not a solution. From the other side to create that atmosphere was kind of unrealistic, because the city has been restored and a lot of soldiers, unfortunately, have passed away. Our animation studio animators have suggested using 3D photo mapping with motion graphics. They have converted historical moments from 2d to 3d and give them motion. It is fresh and interesting: new look, new life and big message to the coming generations.
