This showreel link displays completed efforts from my thesis project, professional practice, and freelance works. All animation pieces were created independently, from the pre-production stage (including character designs, storyboards, color keys, background designs, and visual developments), to the final video edits and compositions. Collaboration with various talented voice actors and sound designers was one of the key elements to bring the films to life. Software applications used in the animation productions are as follows:


  • Animation: Toon Boom Harmony (most), Flash, TVPaint Animation

  • Storyboard: Toon Boom Storyboard Pro

  • Color Key & background design & visual development: Photoshop

  • Motion Graphics: Adobe After Effects

  • Video Editing: Adobe Premiere Pro

  • Sound Effects: Adobe Audition, Pro Tools

  • Script Writing: Celtx
