Environment assets from Turbosquid, SFX from Youtube
This project started as a camera exploration for a chase scene. I found out that I love playing around with scale in my camera compositions, whether it is the difference between character to character or character to world. The bigger the contrast, the more I am drawn to the story.

Snorkel Goggle Prop by Marc Mons from Turbosquid.
Rig using Dana Rig by Gabriel Salas.
This is a project I did in learning about wave principles in animation. The story is about a girl snorkeling and a mysterious underwater creature just passed by. She rise up the surface and is unsure of what she saw at first. When she sees the creature passed by her again, she's surprised but found it fascinating in the end.

Tiger Walk Cycle

Animation, Layout and Lighting by me.
Rig from CG Spectrum.
This was my first time animating a quadruped (a four-legged animal). To me, it was interesting that the walk cycles are like two bipeds combined with a complimentary timing. I did a pantomime of the tiger as well which can be found on my Animation Demo Reel.

Midnight Snack

Animation, Lighting, and Environment by me.
Rig using Norman Rig.
This is one of my favorite projects in 2020! The story is about a guy getting some snacks from the refrigerator. It took place at midnight when he was staying up late to finish binge watching a whole season of a TV series. The original idea was from my friend's IG story, in which I'm guessing he stayed up late and starts doing a dinosaur walk.

Kaghati Teaser Trailer

Kaghati is a 3D animated collaborative student film directed by Stanley Soendoro and Amanda Jayapurna. It tells a story about a young girl visits her grandfather's home in the rural Indonesia for the first time. Through exploring her cultural roots and the kite-maker's craft, they discover a new, exciting way to connect.

Shot Breakdown

Responsible for animation only. There were lots of changes in terms of object placement on the working desk which affected the animation. During Blocking stage, we didn't know that there will be a sketchbook on the middle of the table. It was shown in the 2D animatics, but we didn't want Alya, the girl, to be standing on it. So I did several options on ways for her to avoid it; such as stepping to the side and holding on to the top shelf railing. At the end, we decided to repositioned the objects and have her stay in position due to the limited framecount. It was the most challenging shot for me, however I learned a lot about acting and performance in pantomime animation.

Goro Goro Trailer

Goro Goro is a short animated film that follows the story of Daigoro, a baby thunder god, who dreams of being as powerful as his father. Through his thunderous journey, he realizes that he can achieve his dreams in his own unique way.
I co-directed the film with Ryotaro Sawada and worked with 10 other artist from different backgrounds, including concept artists, tech artists, animators, compositors, music composer and sound designers.


Our goal from the very beginning was to have fun and make something doable. When keeping the simplicity of the film, we decided to have only two characters; Daigoro and Dad (appears only as a foot in the majority of the film) and one environment; clouds.

Where’s My Milk? is a 3D-animated short done during a study abroad program in Lacoste, a small village located in south of France. It is a comedy short film that follows the story of Bobo, a city slicker who thinks he knows everything, and a clever cow who outsmarts him. The film was set in the Provence region as we were surrounded by the breathtaking environment of Lacoste during our study abroad program.


We were given 8 weeks to complete a short film during our time in Lacoste, France. In the beginning, 7 animation students individually pitch their stories. The class then anonymously vote for their favorite pitch and the person whom story has the most vote was responsible to be the director of the film. I was very lucky to have my story chosen for production.

Diving Bell is a 3D animated capstone student film project directed by Lyndon Fann. The story is about two scavenger duo, Isabelle and Irving, plunged into depths unknown in search of treasure. Little do they know they have landed in the feeding grounds of the Legendary sea monster: The One Eyed Willie.

This was the first collaboration film I've ever joined and I really enjoyed animating the One Eyed Willie character. I did a walk cycle test during the winter break just for fun. Lyndon loved it and offer me to be the animation lead for the film.

The story is about Jonah, a high school drama club enthusiast has a crush on his classmate Beth; the school volley ace player.

From the Amazon jungles to the deepest oceans, and to the hottest deserts and even outer space, Paula and friends solve problems, have fun and make more friends along the way!I worked on 5 different episodes from the series with different themes and characters for each.

Got It!

This is a 5 shot story that tells about a boy and his chicken.
Special thanks to Professor Keith Ingham and my ANIM 275 classmates for being my favorite class in college.


Daily Whistle

We were given a quick assignment to make 2 versions of storyboard that tells the story of how we got to class that exact day. Then, we took the shots we liked from both versions and combined them into one storyboard. From this, I learned that a well-made sequence usually consist of both simple and complex shots.That morning, I was practicing how to whistle. An article told me that every person should be able to whistle if they practice enough, yet I can't. So I usually practice once in a while during random times.

Re-Tale: Prambanan
Love Story

Prambanan Love Story is a retelling of an old Javanese legend. The story is about the origin of Prambanan Temple in the theme of a high school love story.This storyboards consist of the first act of the story.



In The Mood For Love (2000)

It's a romantic drama film written, produced, and directed by Wong Kar-wai. From this study, I notice that the film mostly uses close-ups and medium shots to give a more intimate feeling to the characters. He also plays a lot with lights and shadows, as well as depth of field to separate focal points from the background/surroundings.
