VIDEO LETTER - TRAILER
My first year short animation film made in CalArts.
When I miss home, I always look at the old photos on my phone. The memories surging into my mind are sometimes clear, sometimes blurry, sometimes happy, but sometimes make me cry.
Whenever I have a video chat with my family, I’m too shy to tell them my love, so I’m thinking… Maybe it’s better to draw my thoughts into a video letter and send it to them.
FEMALE VIRTUES CLASS
A desktop documentary about a sad truth in China.
I was really shocked at those training videos of “Female Virtues Class” online. It’s already 2020! These people who seem to be promoting Chinese traditional culture are actually instilling the old idea of "male are superior to female" into the poor girls’ mind. They just want every girl to be the same, and ask them to be obedient and ugly. So I made this desktop documentary film with the videos I found on the Internet and some animations I drew to express my anger. At the same time to record the absurd side of this world.
My first stop-motion animation.
This is a crazy world where people like big boobs and big holes. Women with big boobs and men with big holes are more popular. And the way people find love is through matching boobs and holes together. When a girl has small and strange boobs, she was first upset and wished them bigger. Finally she realized that true love has nothing to do with the size of boobs.
GOODBYE, MY LOVER
A short animation based on one of my comic story.
This is a sad love story, but it has a happy ending, for Y and I finally moved on and decided to say goodbye to their old love.
NOCTURNAL ANIMALS IN CITY
A paper-cut animation.
One late night. I walked on the street and found the city in dark tube quite lively and busy. The employee at the convenience store was doing cleanings. A drunk guy was singing loudly. The taxi driver waited for guests while smoking and listening to music ... They are just like nocturnal animals working or wandering while others are sleeping. It impressed me a lot.
