Flamingo Pride
Frustrated being the only straight flamingo in a gay flock, the hero falls in love with a lady stork that flies by. Unable to convince her of his intentions, he isolates himself and goes through an identity crisis. An intensive encounter inspires a bold move.

I want to thank the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia for granting me the Award in the CG competition. Though there were a lot of very good films in the Program, I am truly honored. My film would not have been possible without the collaboration of many great talents. I would also like to thank my team for doing such an amazing job. I hope to participate again in the future with new work. I had a great visit in Tokyo.
