周華健 潑墨

MV | WAKIN CHAU - Perpetual War


No items found.

By referring to our culture, history andliterature, the music video Perpetual War imparts the feeling of standing onthe shoulders of giants. More importantly, it is an anti war message thatsuggests war's inevitable return. It contains a great deal of symbolism andreferences to well known passages of ancient poetry such as, “One generalachieves renown over the dead bodies of ten thousand soldiers” by the TangDynasty poet Cao Song; “Eastward the Yangtse River flows, Its waves washingaway traces, Of giant people of all times old,” and “Silk-capped, with featherfan, He laughed and jested, While the dread enemy fleet was burned to ashes.”both by Song Dynasty master Su Shi. The video depicts endless war, therepetition of human destiny, and heroes from various periods of Chinese historypursuing ideals or fame. With ever increasing destructive power, war scenes inthe video change from ancient to modern, and suggesting that even though thetechnology of war has changed from sword and crossbow to guns, bombs andchemicals, that it all is just debris, just as well all are, forming the riverof history.

 

We have always felt that creating videosentails much social responsibility because their impact is so large, and canresult in positive power or negative destruction. Used properly, they caneducate or reassure the public, help the weak or even stop war. We hope thisvideo will encourage people to look back on history, and reflect, reconsiderand learn from our predecessors.

 

「潑墨」講的是我們的文化、我們的歷史、我們的典故,製作這支影片彷彿就像是站在巨人的肩膀上,更重要的是,「潑墨」訴說的是反戰、輪迴的議題。影片中藏了很多符號與元素,一些中國流傳千古的詩文經典,像是:"一將功成萬骨枯。"、"大江東去,浪淘盡,千古風流人物。"、"羽扇綸巾,談笑間,檣櫓灰飛煙滅。"。畫面上演繹中國各朝各代的英雄好漢追求著屬於自己的理想或功名,戰爭從未停歇,歷史不斷重演的人類宿命。影片中的戰爭場面從古代演變到近代,暗示隨著時代衍進,刀劍弓弩換成了槍砲彈藥,雖然破壞力變強了,但最終只是形成歷史江河中的一片瓦礫,而你我亦然。

 

我們一直覺得,從事影像設計這行的社會責任非常重要,因為影像設計的影響力非常大,可以帶來正面的力量也可以造成負面的破壞。如果用在對的地方,可以教育大眾、安撫人心、幫助弱勢、甚至阻止戰爭。希望能藉由這隻作品,讓觀眾好好回顧一下歷史,從典故中記取教訓、從中反省、思考與借鏡。
