Director Statement

My goal for this short was to explore new styles using CG, in this case, art Prints. I combined this with my love of the backpacking community and SE Asia specifically, the weird unspoken rules you pick up from other backpackers, and your own journey. And of course, SE Asia is an absolute melting pot of culture and history that is very alien to the western world, pop some inexperienced youths in there and you're bound to have hilarity ensue.
