A Germy Production

This project was completed in 3 months with a team of 6 people. It was a privilege working with them due to their individual talents. I worked on the storyboards, lighting, modelling, texturing and animating as did my team mates. We were not confined to specific roles and I learnt so much because of this. The animation is not based on a true story which is obviously the case, but my team and I would admit that there are real life characters who come quite close to the characters in the story.

One funny remark was made by a friend and then the idea of 'SWITCH' was born.

Above is a compilation of rendered shots to show the overall mood of the animation. Red, green and blue were the main colors used and the sushi house was given a nice warm feeling as we wanted a contrast between the interior and the outdoors where it was blue-ish and cool.

I do want to thank Hong Ling Yang, Fidelis Woo, Lim An Jun, Toon Pei Ling and Khoo Siew May for the teamwork and joy in the entire process of this project, start to end.


The animation won 3 Crowbar awards in August 2010.
3D Animation: GOLD award
Animation: GOLD award
Art Direction: Silver award
