Since You’ve Been Ong – 72 Hour Shootout

Hi everyone!

A brief update: Our revised edit has been making the festival rounds, but we’d appreciate you voting for us on IMDb:

You can also become a Fan of SYBO on Facebook and find out about our upcoming screenings:

This started when the NY-based Asian American Film Lab had the 72 Hour Shootout, a film contest where we make a movie over a weekend. I co-wrote and acted in it with a group of friends in San Francisco, and our team was called the “Sake Bombers”! Here was the theme we were given on Friday night:

* Elizabeth Ong is missing
* Elizabeth Ong’s absence is essential to your story
* Elizabeth Ong does not visually appear in your film
* Elizabeth Ong has a connection with characters in your film

It’s very different from Kiwi, but I hope you like it. It’s also my acting debut! Other than that, I’ve just been busy with work.

Thanks for watching!

Something I made while goofing off on XSI one night. There really was no point or meaning to this at all. Music by the Animal Collective.
96 sec.

Rooftop Animation

Stop motion photography on my rooftop in NYC. Music by Eisley.
19 sec.

I rock out

Me rockin out
34 sec.

Floursack X

One of my first animations, starring kung fu floursacks. And yes, good ears people! I know all the sound is way hacked, that’s what you get for trying to do the music the day before its due.

And I am not splitting hairs over weather this is ninja of kung fu! This is a result of me playing too many video games from Japan and watching too many Kung Fu movies from Hong Kong! So really its an ignorant Westerners interpretation of Eastern entertainment………with Halo music in the beginning.

My Master’s Thesis Animation, which I completed while I was at The School of Visual Arts, MFA Computer Art, in New York City. Created using Maya, After Effects, and rigged using The Setup Machine by Anzovin studios. If you would like to download there is a small version at my website:

The music is orginal and is by Tim Cassell, someone I went to highschool with. The music is available here:

Alot of people have been emailing me asking a whole lot of questions. Maybe you can find some answers here:

Everyone thank you so much for your compliments and kind words!
