Hokkien Me by Lawrence Poh

Lawrence Poh is majoring in Digital Animation at Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media (ADM). Through his Final Year Project  titled Hokkien Me, he wants to help inspire others to preserve the diminishing dialects across different nationalities as a result of modernisation.

“In every nationality, there will definitely be different groups and communities that speak their own dialects and practice the dialect’s cultures. These are usually common among the elderly or the older generations in present day. Due to modernisation, these dialects begin to diminish and are at the risk of disappearing from the younger generations. Hokkien Me is an animation that explores the fusion of personal experiences and motion graphics where elements are created from memory for the film. The film aims to create an interest in learning and preserving the diminishing dialects by creating connections between the audience and their past.”
