Film notes

I definitely want to make an animation like a poem or a surrealistic painting. Since hearing ‘The Origin of Love’, the sound track, from the movie ‘Hedwig’, I have been really obsessed by the idea that originally humans were glued back to back. So, I tried to create a story line based on this idea, designed symbolic characters and produced the surrealistic film that combines handcrafted art and digital techniques. I hope that an audience will enjoy the film and be stirred by beautiful moving images.
