2017: A retrospective

In 2016, I wrote this in my retrospective post:

For 2017, my main focus is to complete my MA as best as possible.

And… it is fulfilled! MA Arts Pedagogy and Practice awarded by LASALLE x Goldsmiths. Very happy to have achieved results after putting an extremely high amount of effort on it. The defining attribute of my work is none other than risk-taking. I thank my teachers and classmates for the unique learning experience!

Also some of the highlights this year was winning the Gold Award at Digicon6 Singapore to have a great trip in Tokyo (including a hike at Mitsutoge), getting a promotion to full lecturer and presenting at Italy (including a helicopter rescue at Vette Feltrine). Till today I have not spent a single cent on airfare, and I wonder if it really is possible to travel the world with that record. A lot of these are thanks to the people around me making it possible – my colleagues and wonderful boss-mentor and the team behind my film.

Another achievement is getting gold in IPPT for the first time in my life, and twice in the year, due to an age re-categorization.

For 2018, I am back full-throttle on creation – animated films and artworks. Hoping to make, express and articulate in new and better ways. And perhaps another mountain may call upon me to ascend it…

To a better year ahead!


DEATH STRANDING (2017) trailer 2

2nd teaser of the game, Death Stranding, by Kojima Productions, revealing a more dark yet beautiful antagonist.


Lux: Binding Light (2017)

Glen Keane is back to show us the beauty of the pencil in animation!


IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS, DUDE (2017)

A 2nd year film from CalArts. Very heavy drama on a simple premise, the ending works!


Welcome To My Life (2017)

A cartoon network mini by Elizabeth Ito. Very nice 2D style on live-action background and the theme of social inclusion is so popular nowadays. This one is handled very well in my opinion.


Little Witch Academia ED2

Animated by Masanobu Hiraoka. Fluid as always!
