Showcasing Heritage with 3D Animation: Cambodia
In 2017, Sambor Prei Kuk, a historic 7th-century temple complex, was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But few people, even within the country, know about it. To raise awareness, a Cambodian university professor and a Japan-affiliated IT company work together to produce a CG animation. We follow their efforts to promote tourism, build up IT experience among young Cambodians and capture 3D data that can be used to benefit the community.
