Heavenkid

ToTo by accident opened a device that transformed a chessboard into a Space Door. So, he and Ahya could become anything they wanted, going anywhere they wished. They fought with each other while playing out many different roles. This means they would be locked within, unable to escape. HeavenKid used his magic to awaken them teaching them the book Di-Zi-Gui. Finally, they having learnt their wrongs, corrected their ways, averting the crisis. (mp4)

Director Statement

The book Di-Zi-Gui was written based on Confucius, a wisdom of ancient China. Di-Zi-Gui outlines the standards for being a good student and child. Confucius believed that moral principles, virtues, and discipline should be the very first lessons taught to a child, and that a child needs to practice them daily.
The program HeavenKid uses a theatrical 3D approach to educational television programming replacing dogmatic preaching approaches. The 3D animation and lively entertainment provides a moral educational tool in a subtle manner.
