Synopsis In order to celebrate our school 10th Anniversary in the year 2011 and the opening of 3D computer animation learning centre, we have made this 3D Animation. In recent years, our school has achieved excellent results in various 3D animation contests, we are proud to be given the name 'Shaolin Animation monastery' (The cradle of 3D computer animation). We use the idea of a little boy pursuing the excellence of kung fu as our theme in order to bring out the message that time and heart are essential elements in making a good animation. The road to success comes through hard work and effort, the story encourage people try and go head even they are facing many difficulties.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“This trip allowed us to go to the cinemas and to see the films, but also brought us to become aware of the 7 voices of the festival, which are Discrimination, Environment, Health, Poverty, Violence, Women's Rights, and Youth. Along with other participants, we discussed the topics and built up our skills in shooting, editing and communication during the process of the film making to speak out to the world audience. We even discussed the possibility of hosting the festival in Hong Kong in 2015 at the networking session.”

— Shared by Chan Ka-chun, director of Shaolin Monastery, after attending the 7th International Youth Media Summit in Serbia, under the sponsorship of NAE.

If I have to use one word to conclude this trip, it would definitely be "spectacular". This festival has provided me the opportunity to know more about global film cultures and these would come in handy when I want to share my experience with my students and also when making animations. During this trip, not only the films by professionals had widen my horizon, the films from kid category also blew my mind as I had never thought about those ideas. These inspired me a lot that I now see things in a lot of ways in order to find new angle of views and new ideas for my upcoming projects. This film festival was definitely spectacular. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to New Action Express Hong Kong for giving us such an opportunity to explore more. This trip cannot be successfully completed without the help from NAEHK.
