Film Character Development for this year! The Ogre! ^^

mischromatic asked "Hey knocknak! I'm Ash and I believe I emailed you a few months ago about the calarts portfolio. I wanted to thank you for your help but I also wanted to say thank you for being an inspiration! Your art and your films are absolutely beautiful! I watched your film "Love" again recently and I found myself crying again (yes, AGAIN). I'm still patiently waiting for my decision letter and I wanted to let you know I'm doing well. Let's hope for the very best! Hope you had an amazing day! Until then~~~~"

Aloha Ash!!!

Thank you so so much for your kind words. I’m so touched. I really am. It means so much to me.

When I was making the film Love, it was an experimental journey for me to create emotions visually. I cried every day working on it hahaha and I ended up developing a anxiety disorder (crazy!!!) so I had to find myself again. (I’m all better now so it’s all good.)

I’m so thankful that I got to help at least a little bit!

I’ll hope that you get in! And always always feel free to keep in contact with me!

sending you tons of love.

Aloha everyone! How is everybody doing? I hope you are doing wonderful! ^^
I&#8217;ve been busy working on my 3rd year film here at CalArts!
Here&#8217;s the 1st run at the color script I worked on for the film and I can&#8217;t wait to share more with you! Woohooo!
my film this year titled, Uō (Hawaiian word meaning howl) is about a Ogre who loses his pet wolf and the world comes together to help him.
For the color scheme of my film, I was studying different sunrises around the world and was inspired by how the sun rises each day and shines down to saturate the colors around us and make the world a beautiful place. Oh the warmth!
Well, that&#8217;s it for now!
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Growing up, I&#8217;ve always loved ladybugs!
Ever since I was little, whenever a ladybug came my way,
I felt as if the luck was on my side that day.

Have a lucky day everyone!&#160;: - )

"King of the Sea"Once upon a time there lived a king who lost his little princess to the pirates.The king traveled all over the world to look for his daughter but she was nowhere to be found.He would ask and cry, but no one knew where she had gone.One day, a wizard came to him and said, “I can turn you into a ocean so that you can look even more!”The king became the ocean and continued his search for his long lost daughter.Every night, he would stop ships that came his way and ask, “where is my daughter?”And the ships would panic and scream, “we don’t know your daughter!”In his anguish, he would drown ships into the deep blue sea and cry, “daughter daughter! Where have you gone?”Every time he moves, he creates a wave, and every wave you see on the shores by the sea, is the movement of the King of the Sea, searching for his daughter. A father’s love for his child can be much deeper and much more vast than the entire ocean itself.

"King of the Sea"

Once upon a time there lived a king who lost his little princess to the pirates.

The king traveled all over the world to look for his daughter but she was nowhere to be found.

He would ask and cry, but no one knew where she had gone.

One day, a wizard came to him and said, “I can turn you into a ocean so that you can look even more!”

The king became the ocean and continued his search for his long lost daughter.
Every night, he would stop ships that came his way and ask, “where is my daughter?”
And the ships would panic and scream, “we don’t know your daughter!”

In his anguish, he would drown ships into the deep blue sea and cry, “daughter daughter! Where have you gone?”

Every time he moves, he creates a wave, and every wave you see on the shores by the sea, is the movement of the King of the Sea, searching for his daughter. 

A father’s love for his child can be much deeper and much more vast than the entire ocean itself.

I had a dream where I was swimming in a deep blue sea as jellyfishes and fishes gently danced along the way. I felt this calmness and it felt as if I was finding myself again. I kept swimming deeper and deeper, and in my darkness, I don&#8217;t quite seem to know who I really am. I wonder if this is fear.
