6th Of June, 1944

The 6th Of June, 1944 - A day in which all of modern history pivoted on. This year was the 70th anniversary of D-Day, a day in which 160,000 soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy in a last ditch attempt to push back a force that seemed set to successfully fulfill it's ambitions of world domination.

Animated by L'Atelier using traditional hand drawn animation, 6th Of June captures the stark contrast of that beach- a peaceful place now, a killing field 70 years ago. We're all indebted to the efforts of those soldiers, as the world would have been a different place had that massive mission failed.
