Animal Tales

I really haven’t been doing much since the pandemic began. I’ve been starting and stopping pre-production for my feature for almost 2 years because of the many lockdowns in Malaysia. So, I decided to come up with some animal stories. Right before the pandemic hit, I had wanted to make some short films about animals in the jungle, but making films seems impossible to me these days. So instead I will tell you these tales using my Zoom camera.

Part 1: The Frog
Part 2: The Caterpillar
Part 3: The Squirrel
Part 4: The Junglefowl
Part 5: The Wild Boar
