After the death of a whale, its corpse will become oasis for hundreds even thousands to live. Same as the death of a man – his word and love will continuously affect next generation that follow. As a great writer, that is how my grandfather affected Chinese literature and me after his death.

Short Film: HAPPY THE ANGRY POLAR BEAR, 3min., Animation/Family

20214fe2b8 poster

All the animals at the Zoo were happy as can be
But Happy was not happy, nor was he free
Happy was angry, an angry polar bear
No one knew why and no one seemed to care
It was like any day for Happy at the zoo
Until something happens out of the blue!
It infuriates Happy! What will he do?
Something you’ve never seen. Probably never knew.

Short Film: MARY & MARSHA IN THE MANOR OF MADNESS, 3min., USA, Animation

Screenshot 2017 05 27 22.07.25

Sinister secrets await as Mary helps her girlfriend Marsha escape from her parent’s gothic mansion one dark and eldritch night. This hand drawn and digitally animated ‘one shot’ film takes us on a Lovecraftian escapade through the Manor of Madness. Our goal with this film was to combine the creeping horror of H.P. Lovecraft with the wacky action of classic Saturday morning cartoons. This bizarre juxtaposition of styles helps emphasize both the weirdness of the horror and the silliness of the humor. Also the idea of “Scooby-doo chases in H.P. Lovecraft” is just inherently funny, to us at least. The “side-scrolling” cinematography both suited the 2D animation and helped emphasize the eerie atmosphere of the mansion surroundings. It also makes it easy to understand where everything is in relationship to each other during the chaotic chase sequences.
