"Sung Min (DENNIS) Kim is a dedicated and passionate artist. He has a unique style that shines throughout all of his work. He draws each scene, frame by frame, creating a new drawing for each little bit of movement in the animation. Dennis draws hundreds of pages to create barely a minute of movement. A tedious, but rewarding process he cannot stay away from. "
Directed, shot, and edited by Lukas Dong. More from Lukas Dong at www.lukasdong.com.
Dennis has recently completed his service in the Republic of Korea Army as an Army interpreter, and currently studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
