Theresa Cheong is fresh out of the BA(Hons) Animation Arts programme at LASALLE College Of The Arts. She illustrates, animates and paints and is now working as a Stereo Paint Artist at Double Negative Singapore.
Theresa’s thesis film received bronze under the Film Category for the Crowbar Awards 2015 and today she tells us what it is about. “Siewli and AhFAI is produced by me and my friend Low Hui Li. It follows Ah FAI; an inept, young cleaning robot’s attempt to befriend Siewli; a grumpy and old mechanic. This story was conceived with the idea of reconciling two very contrasting characters: old and young, mechanical and organic, and innocence with cynicism.”
