The Fruit Hunters in Theaters November 2012

I have been working hard for a very long time, with my friend Brandon Blommeart, animating and creating visual effects for a documentary film called The Fruit Hunters, and we're finally able to share some snippets. Based on a book by the same name by Adam Leith Gollner, and directed by Yung Chang, who's other films include Up The Yangtze and China Heavyweight, this film promises to be a journey into the world of fruit hunting the likes you have never seen before.

Opens in theaters November 23rd, in Montreal and Toronto.

To James from Lei at the OIAF Animators picnic


James B, Lei Lei wanted me to try posting this video that I recorded at this years Ottawa International Animation Festivals' Animators Picnic. He has trouble accessing certain content in China so I thought I'd try uploading to my blog so that you can both see.

Everybody else, do yourself a favour and check out both of these blokes' websites. Your eyeballs will not regret.
