【看CP學英文】2019新型冠狀病毒疫情肆虐,人類面臨空前浩劫,只求能盡快走出疫情的漩渦,重入光明。在台灣,媽祖是人們心靈的寄託,但今年因疫情而延後,無法如期舉辦,因此諾恩動畫特別製作「媽祖巡福」動畫短片為台灣、全世界祈福。

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, people from all around the world are expressing hopes for a quick recovery. In Taiwan, many have turned to Mazu, the sea Goddess, who is at the heart fo Taiwanese people’s beliefs and traditions. The Mazu pilgrimage is usually held in March; however, all religious activities have been postponed due to the pandemic.

Even though you can’t attend the annual pilgrimage, you can enjoy this short animated film, titled “Mazu Pilgrimage,” from the comfort of your home. 

獲獎無數的諾恩動畫以原木色調媽祖音樂盒為主題,創作這部60秒短動畫。影片中,鑾轎緩緩上升,眾多壯漢抬著轎子,一旁有人吹著嗩吶,重現迎神畫面,短短的影片令人看來相當暖心。

Knock-Knock Animation made this 60 seconds animated film on the theme of a music box, recreating the scene of Mazu Pilgrimage in the hope of giving blessings to the world. At the center, Mazu sitting in the sedan chair, with an orchestra playing suona around her.
