Yin and Dave part 1 is finally out!

Hey everyone. Yin and Dave part 1 is finally out on the web! Part two will be completed by the end of this year most likely. I finished the film as the plumber was at my house hehe.

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.
Till then!


  1. Ah ha! So this is the mysterious project you've been hiding from us! :)
    Looks good! I loled at the animation of his reaction to the cupcake :)
    I'm looking forward to the next installment of their relationship. You've certainly set the scene well :)

    1. thank you for your support! i'm glad you got the cupcake joke. your kindness is greatly appreciated!
