GALLERY 08: D&AD/Campaign Screen - New Directors - Alexander Kok Hwee

This Central St Martins graphic design graduate teamed up with classmates, Sunghoon Kang and Damien Borowik, to create a three-minute animated film, Angela's Ashes, inspired by Frank McCourt's novel. The trio, who hail from Singapore, Korea and France respectively, have created a beautiful and moving typographic film which uses water as a visual metaphor to express the emotions of the author. The soft piano soundtrack also emphasises the mood of sadness.
