The 21st Bucheon Worldwide Animation Pageant (BIAF 2019), being held October, 18-22, 2019, has introduced the official poster created by Denis Do, the director of BIAF 2018 Jury Prize-winning characteristic Funan.
A graduate of acclaimed French animation faculty Gobelins, Do has earned a number of prestigious awards Annecy 2018 Cristal, and the Grand Prize and Viewers Award from Animation Is Movie Pageant in L.A.
I wished to hyperlink the feminine martial artist to the character by the enduring sculpture. As a result of martial arts are so deeply anchored in our asian cultures, it’s a solution to remind our cultural and non secular legacy, our peaceable thoughts. Additionally, the feminine protagonist is designed with muscle mass and powerful shapes…We do not usually present such character. Not sensual, not attractive, solely a robust physique and a robust thoughts. I wished to take the chance and I assumed it will be related for an asian animation movie competition to spotlight colours and tradition of an asian nation (not very recognized one). Additionally, to make a brief movie with ambitions, not one thing to easy.
Do may even take part within the BIAF2019 as a part of the characteristic movie competitors jury.
