  2. A search for higher meaning, dissatisfaction with the status quo and a sense that you’re the first person to feel this way.
    You're not.

    A semi-satirical coming of age story told by handmade wooden puppets.

  4. Exiled from the tropical paradise where they evolved, a tiny population of remarkable stick insects dodged extinction by hiding under a single windswept bush on the world's tallest sea stack for 80 years. Thanks to a dedicated team of scientists they're now living safely in captivity, but when can they go home?

  5. Please visit yukaidu.com/Way-Out-Animation to know more about the project.

    ‘Way out’, my MA graduation film, is inspired by ‘Alone Together’ by Sherry Turkle and a reflection of modern life in this digital age. The exaggerated contrast between emotionless citizens and characterized phones reveals our over-­‐dependence on virtual communication. A dramatic and extreme consequence shows a negative attitude, for which no one can escape the trend of technology that originally comes from the endless appetence of human beings.
