1. Long ago, a war was waged between two nations: Tonga and Nanumea (currently an islet of Tuvalu). The Tongans set out to destroy the Nanmeans, over the death of a fallen prince, but even their strongest warrior, a giant by the name of Tulaapoupou, was no match for the likes of Nanumea's protector, Lapi.

  2. Final version of my animated short, Te Lima. It's about an ancient Nanumean (Tuvaluan) power that is unique to only a select few families. However, over time, its power has been both elusive and mystical. This is dedicated to my ancestors so that our people may remember the old stories that are slowly being forgotten.

    This was produced at RMIT's Centre for Animation & Interactive Media, in the span of five weeks.

    Part of the Tales From Nanumea series, Episode 1.

    Synopsis: Traditions say that the first people to be found on the island of Nanumea, Tuvalu, were two women, Pai and Vau. Tefolaha (a man whose true origins are debated to be either Samoan or Tongan) tricked the two women, with the use of his spiritual prowess, into thinking that he was the true founder of the land. As a result, Pai and Vau were forced to leave the island, leaving Tefolaha as the new founder, guardian and protector.
