Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“Thanks to NAE project, I had the chance to represent Hong Kong animators to show my work « I’m ». I really enjoyed the screening held. The audience was awesome. They were curious about my inspiration. Actually, this animation is sort of a self-expression. I made this animation just before my graduation. At that time, I was wondering if I should chasing money and wealth life like others or if I should follow my heart to establish my own value. It’s a very short but powerful animation which leads the audience to a universal question: how to find your true self? I’m really glad to hear that some of the audience began to ask this question after the screening.

As a 3D animator, I’m very interested in new technology. During the festival, I had chance to participate 10 different workshops which bring together film schools, design studios and schools specialising in sound and moving image industry. During the workshop, I explored the innovative 3D technology, and met 2D and 3D animators, virtual reality specialists, production designers, etc. Especially I had also met Benoit, the founder of the famous Courant 3D Film Festival. He invited me to submit my works to his festival which gave me a new opportunity to show my work.

Besides, the theme of the Festival was focused on astronomy this year. I’m a real fan of this kind of movies. Some of the ideas are original and innovative which inspired me a lot for my own ICG movie in the near future.

Though I didn’t have enough time to explore all aspects of the festival, I’ve still learnt a lot during the whole trip and it’s definitely worth to come back!
