“Red Panda” is an animated film that is constructed based on various cultural themes that are stemmed from the local (Singaporean) culture and history. The project looks into sentimental thematic points of Singapore’s culture such as an education system that has been criticized to be more engrossed with grades and results. The film is approached based on both the inspiration of such a context and also driven by the focus in utilizing digital tools while preserving traditional aesthetics that bear resemblance to aesthetics of a painting (leaning closer to the Impressionistic era). The film extrapolates and translates this vision into a fictional setting and design built by visual metaphors in both character and environment. The project outcome is not only towards creating a commentary towards the subject matter aforementioned but also a visual discussion and an attempt towards creating a "Singaporean” aesthetic.
