Traditional Chinese revolving lamp works on the same principle. When it revolves, the drawings on it become animation. This is a story about a paper cutting character ‘Paper Child’ who has an adventure in the revolving lamp and somehow Paper Child becomes a Real child.
"Graphic paper cutting breaks out of the two-dimension confine and goes into 3-D. what I try to do here is to break the rules of 3-D animation and introduces a 2-D character into a 3-D surrounding."
