My 2 Year Anniversary at LASALLE
Today marks my 2 years working at LASALLE College of the Arts!
2 years ago, I made the decision to join LASALLE as a teaching assistant in the Animation Programme over joining other companies (well actually nobody wanted to hire me 😛 ). I met Chris Shaw, the head of animation at LASALLE who is the main person responsible for the amount of opportunities I am receiving here. So what have I achieved in these 2 years?
- CG Tutorial published on Lesterbanks, a leading blog in animation and VFX tutorials
- Received the “Best Artist Award” at Digicon6 Singapore 2013.
- Awarded Research Project Funding for my practice-based research in “Singaporean Animation”
- Produced and directed 2 animated short films, 5 Shades of Solitude and Lak Boh Ki (coming soon)
- Paid a total of 11 artists to work on my films (I love paying people, it’s a larger life goal to support other lives)
- Film screened at GV Suntec as part of Utter 2015: Head Trips
- Solo feature on Zaobao and group feature on Shin Ming Daily News
- Sketch published in Urban Sketchers Singapore – Volume 2
- Watercolour paintings exhibited at “We Draw Singapore Together“
- Paper selected for presentation at the CCCS Conference in Skopje, Macedonia
- A free ticket to Paris
And so it’s time I retire as an artist in Paris…
