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.
