Yi’s web site has not been activated, and unfortunately I have been unable to find out much background information, but assume that he is an Arts student at Breda, noord brabant, Netherlands.
Kudos to a remarkable talent in the film industry!
Here’s a link to lots of very interesting information and graphic endeavours of Yi’s:
…My little graphic novel is about to be finished! For now it is called A Nameless Visitor, but I am not yet so happy about it
…Have been working on it for way too long. Still need to fine tune, but first a page here…
ON THE WATER goes to America!
ON THE WATER was shown in 26th Santa Barbara Int’l Film Festival, California, USA, this January, 2011. http://sbiff.org/
From the YouTube trailer of On The Water:
“Life journey is the eternal struggle of propelling oneself forward. Our’s, joy, frustration, hope, loss, beauty and terror.”
