Estranged Stars

My heart has passed thousands of miles from the past, back to the wide wide world.

Estranged Stars is a non-linear storytelling and three minutes’ animation film created for InterActive Corp’s 120-foot long video wall in West Chelsea. It’s about a reunion of two old friends, using montage and flashback to depict the inner activity of two people who chose different life paths.

I use motion capture to create all the characters’ animations, Adobe Fuse to build up the models and Unreal Engine to render the whole story.

Primary Softwares

Unreal Engine, Motion Builder, Maya, Rhino, Blender, Adobe Fuse, After Effects


A collaborative work with Stanlyn Lu.
Original music by David Chen.
Mo-cap performance by Manning Qu.

Special Thanks
