Fisherman follows a young girl’s mission to discover her ancestor’s land. Aided by magical energies, the creatures of the sea and the will of the ancient ocean, our heroine sets off on a quest. Stowed away in a fisherman’s boat, she crosses the wild sea. A storm catapults her cheek to cheek with the ocean bed, where instead of drowning, she discovers her gift for shapeshifting and awakens her true power within.
For Fisherman I teamed up with LA based Korean visual artist and animator Narae Kim. This is out second collaboration and once again we worked remotely together, meeting on zoom and skype at opposite ends of the day sharing ideas, inspirations, drawings and videos. It took us almost a year to create and every step of the creation was such fun. It is a great honour to have it screened around the world at film festivals and we are both so proud to share it with you now.
