Losing my Language

Character animation during the flashback sequence. 

As the animator on this documentary short film, I was responsible for bringing the characters to life to tell their stories. The film was directed and produced by Isaiah Tour and assets were illustrated by So Young Cho.

"Isaiah used to speak Chinese, or that’s what his immigrant parents have told him. Born and raised in New Zealand, Isaiah cannot recall ever speaking Chinese. Now at the age of 26, Isaiah revisits how being English speaking has affected his and his friends’ relationship with their families." - The Wireless NZ
