ABOUT THE FILM

This film presents the unassuming modesty of a watercolor painting in images. Time seems to pass quietly at a slightly decelerated speed and we see carp and dragon flies at one with the pond. Looking at the scene, the word “elegance” will inevitably drift into the mind of the viewer on the gentle, pleasant breeze.

What behinds the peacaful surface? what is inside of the simplenss as it appears? what is beneath the complexity as it pretends? The moive has thrown out the initial query directly to the originality of not only human being but also the whole universe and enable each audience dig out what they expected according to their own experience and what is unexpected to them that the author want to indicate. Excellent is as justified as the comments for the movie.

Dear Mrs. Huang, 是我的第一次留言,很高能看到部短片,?的作品我想到了中国CLASSIC的水墨画,曾在世界上都是独一无二的,而在如今个科技快速advanced年代似乎已属于童年的memory。compare with此次参的?一部来自中国的3D Animation,I think?的作品具更多中国的文化精神和哲学思想,而在一些technique方面又比早期的水墨画有提高,比如music上用modern ambient music取代了古琴等。既能keep some traditional elements又有所突破,非常好,只希望?能insist on this style下去,制作出更多execllent的作品。BTW,我猜想?的age和我差不多,呵呵,我也是01年大学graduated的,but I didn't study animated-making。

Hi, Director Huang! You did a very great job! I like it so much. Those beautiful chinese charactors and water-ink animation are so fabulous. It's so different from those western or Japanese cartoons. It's just amazing!
