“We all see other people from our own perspective. Sometimes, we see something in the other person that no one else notices. In this short film, the story details the curious sense of identification between people through our little heroine – Daiyu. As a lonely child, Daiyu spends her days playing with her toy Godzilla on her little balcony. Soon, she was intrigued by the boy in the whale suit who walks pass her flat every day. One day, she decides to follow the strange boy…. and thus, began her little adventure and journey to uncovering his identity and discover the meaning of friendship.Main inspiration for The Boy in the Whale Suit is Australian illustrator Shaun Tan. His visual aesthetics and narratives have played an important role in shaping the film as it is.”
