Director Statement

My name is Jia Ruan and I am from mainland China, but I am currently living in Savannah, GA. My focus lies in 3D character animation and layout. I enjoy watching anime and playing games on Nintendo Switch or PlayStation. My favorite part of making this film is the 3D pre-vis process, which constructs the foundation of visual storytelling and transform our 2D visions into a 3D world.
