Research and Observations

So the Machine of War is the idea of using a whole force in order to have military seige, using tactics and number to make the battlefield unfair territory. At one point fights were fair, but over time this idea has corrupted because of money, land and power.

There are a couple main themes that need to be conveyed, the first being the whole idea of honour. Knights traditionally have been about honor and respect, but over time that has seemed to fade away with other soldiers or fighters.

The whole theme for the animation is that its a continuation, this tale is still being told, whilst this loop is not endless its easy to see how each conflict can lead into the next. So the whole animation is about progression, and how one event leads into the next so expect a map of how these themes transition from one another very soon.

The main message of the animation will be about how we honor those who were brave for us and with the current world situation, how the future is uncertain and the outcome has yet to be seen.
