Major: Concept and Media Planning
Influenced by the techniques and expressions of animation in Central and Eastern Europe and Russia, I have been making films on the theme of “symbiosis” through animation using paper cutouts. Because we live in an age where events from around the world are spread instantaneously, I place emphasis on the allegorical of fairy tales, poetic expressions and the imaginative power of stories. I am also in charge of the production and video of CuBerry, a video and music art unit, and gives live performances and makes music videos in various places. ..
