In The Waves

Ying-Fang Shen
United States, 2015, 6 min.


This film is family friendly.

The very short but magical moment we passed.

Director's Statement

In The Waves is a short animation inspired by my daughter, when she was a fetus in me. The visuals are created out of fabric and my tie-dye work. It took a long time to get the look – just like making animation. A lot of the marks are unexpected. They are like strokes of a painting – one leads to another. In here, they inspire the movements, and open the next scene.

Category: Animation.
Themes: Family.
