Director's Statement

There is no doubt that 2020 is extraordinary for everyone. We are almost reaching the end of 2020, yet most of us are still in lockdown because of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are already 47 million cases globally and the death toll is soared past 1 million.

The pandemic comes rattling over the world in full fury. As human being, we are unable to resist. When will this pandemic be over? Only time can tell.

Sometimes I’m dreaming about, what if COVID-19 can read our mind? What if they know how many lives are affected because of themselves? Would the story have a different ending? And that is how my inspiration comes from. Reality is cruel. But at least we can fly with wings of dream. Isn’t it?

Hope you enjoy my animation!
