I majored in Sculpture. Sculpture is a fascinating form of art that captures and expresses a moment in time. However, rather than conveying a singular moment in time, I was instead more attracted to expressing “movement.” I was interested in the process of observing a motionless character, imagining its nature, and materializing this nature into actual movements.
During my studies, I had a chance to put my major to use by making a claymation video. At first, I wanted to use clay, but soon realized that this material had certain limitations. Eventually, I ended up creating the video using 3D animation. While working on the 3D video, I found myself enjoying the aspect of creating movement animations. As I had always enjoyed cinema, I was considering it as a career for some time. However, I was more drawn to animation since I felt that this was the field that I would enjoy and excel in the most. That is how I started my career as a cinematic animator.
