Couch & Potatoes, the stop-motion film I made with Eunsoo, has been selected as a National Finalist for the 40th Student Academy Awards! This nomination is a humble and honorary surprise. What a journey it's been for the short little film, we had no idea it would ever amount to this kind of recognition. I can still remember the first conversation we had about it, just to do something challenging for fun, and being inspired by all of our fellow schoolmates who had also directed their own self-initiated short films, a couple of which I had the pleasure of working with them on. And what an honor to finally represent SJSU's Animation/Illustration program! It's such a good program and it deserves to be recognized as such. This post is a shout out to all its wonderful members!
