I know this film was supposed to be done a month ago. Seeing that I had completed my thesis in a similar style, I greatly underestimated the time needed to complete. It actually takes a lot longer for me to color and composite than to animate. This film is more detailed than my thesis.
The inspiration for the film is not so much based on me, but based on people around me, partically my male non-asian friends who are dating asian women. Some of it is based off of my experience dating a non asian. Mostly tho, this film is really about cultural clash and racial clash. Many times I would bring non asian friends to my house as my parents would look at them kinda funny.
I'm psyched about part two. Now that I know how long it takes for me to color, I can better prepare.
