Pantyliner Ads

If you come to our office recently, you probably wonder why are there packets of pantyliner on the guys desk and why are the guys examining the pantyliner so closely. haha. (After much research, now I understand the difference between pantyliner and sanitary pads) In our job, we learn something new everyday. LOL. Isn't that great.So here is the answer. Watch the video. (This version still have some minor tech error. The final version will be released in cinema eventually)

Guess the most difficult part is developing the story, designing a character out of the product and ensuring it is appropriate to the culture of the market we are targeting at, storyboarding/animatics , production etc etc all in 3 weeks. This is also our first entry to the Vietnam market. (Who can imagine there is opportunity there) Glad at the end, the client is happy. And the most rewarding moment is to see our company's logo at the end. Its little thing like this, makes us very proud and happy. Thank you to my client for this valuable opportunity.

Shared Link: How did I first started the studio without external investment? by David Kwok

Many people asked me how I bootstrapped my company when I first started. In fact, for the past 10 years since I first started, I’ve been bootstrapping my business, till today. (Read past article with regards to getting the right investors)

(Reference: Bootstrapping in business means starting a business without external help or capital. Such startups fund the development of their company through internal cash flow and are cautious with their expenses. Generally at the start of a venture, a small amount of money will be set aside for the bootstrap process.)

When you first get started, try to keep your overhead as small as possible. We have tried working from home and linking everyone up via FTP. DIY most things on our own. From assembling our own PC / network to basic decor of the office.

In 2007 – this was the first time – I setup my own permanent facility. I was first offered to produce 3 episodes for an animated series project. The project only lasted for 6 months. (Don’t do it like me. Ha ha. Try to ensure you have a project that can last you for at least 12 months. Else it’s too risky.) That is how I started. To read more about this, click here

Old Photos by David Kwok

Found these old photo banners in the server. These photos are treasure. I have been searching for these old photos for years. Regretted not taking many photos when I first started. At that time, there was no facebook or other social media to backup the images. No smart phone. Photos were taken mainly using traditional film camera.
