I’m pleased to announce that Raj Kottamasu will be creating a short animation for the film: Taiwan in Two Minutes. Yes, the entire history of Taiwan in two minutes through cut-out collage animation. Maybe the sequence will start with me setting an egg timer. Raj has a masters from MIT in City Planning and a … Continue reading Planimation
Well, we are just about done with a third draft of the film and its approximately 60 minutes long. We are missing a short intro at the beginning and animation, all of which will add another 6-8 minutes. That’s just about long enough for festivals to program the film.

I am still pinching myself. Thank you to everyone who contributed. I can’t … Continue reading Indiegogo Goal Met! Interview in CineVue!

There are five days left and I promise I won’t bug you every day about this campaign, but I thought I should share that I’ve added a NEW … Continue reading New Perk for Indiegogo Campaign
