At the time we were playing with the idea of telling the short from the perspective of shoes…using her feet as a major story point. Thematically it was a little different too, we had the protagonist achieve a different dream ...

A few color keys I painted over some awesome boards by @andrew_chesworth . Before we started I was *terrified* because I didn’t know a thing about color and light!

Some examples of final animation w/ the color keys I painted over the shots. Our lighting & comp team, led by GaoShang Zhang, would then realize these images beautifully for the final film! These particular shots were animated by @andrew_chesworth , @shaofu.zhang, with tech anim by @andrewtaylorjennings , and hair anim by Joy Johnson.

“Did you eat yet?” Ahh yes a common hello for Asian households. I love the idea of dinner tables being a place where, regardless of the madness of your day, a family can be present and connect. Mama P’s specialties were her world-famous Grilled Cheese, Spaghetti, or Fried Rice! Another valuable thing I learned in that Schoolism class was how to construct different lighting setups using a ...


A little something for Taiko Studios’ first short film, One Small Step. It was such an endearing short to watch and definitely embodied everything I wanted to put into my own stories. . . . #OneSmallStep #luna #FatherChu #taikostudios #moleskine #space #astronaut #Illustration #drawing #art #sketch #ArtistsOnInstagram
