This experimental short explores cel animation and footage to replay a dream-like sequence of my friend's fears of being trapped in an old place.
Inspired by my friend's account of being an international student living in America away from his hometown of Vietnam. I was drawn to his side of the story in how he explains why he no longer associates himself with Vietnam in relation to his current identity.
Programs used: Photoshop, After effects, Premiere, traditional oil paint. All footage shot by me.
Special thanks to Justin Kahn and Jerry Hsu
