ABOUT THE FILM
The Boy in the Whale Suit is the thesis film for Marie, KiKi and Michelle, often abbreviated as MKM. The film sets out to explore the theme of recognising unique qualities within individuals, even if the world overlooked them.
The 8-minute film was created in the span of 9 months during their final year at LASALLE College of the Arts. Marie hailed as art director/concept artist/storyboard artist; KiKi was in charge of texture, lighting, compositing and cloth simulation while Michelle singlehandedly animated every moving object in the film. (Lots of credits are also given to friends and coursemates who gave the film their time and expertise.)
