Director & Creator of "The Train to Qinling" Short Film

"The Train to Qinling" is an award wining short, which I've created as my thesis film at Ringling College of Art & Design (Computer Animation department).

I am responsible for all aspects from pre-production to final rendered product.

I worked with a team (composer, sound designer, sound mixer and voice actor) to form a unique whimsical vision, inspired by experiences of traveling the world and influenced by volunteer work with non-verbal children.

Here are some of the awards the film has received so far
