1, 3D Animated Short Film: You Are Not Alone
This is my 2015 Thesis project for my MFA at Pratt Institute. All visual effects are created on my own.

2, Video-Mapping Tao Quanyin
This is a project I took part in during my internship at Glowing Pictures. I did the lighting and texture animation, model correction and rendering task.
This project is a video-mapping on Tao Downtown's massive Quan Yin statue. I used Maya to correct the virtual camera to match the projector on the celling. Then I created some animated lighting and textures which projected on the statue to make it “vivid”.

3, Mine Accident Visualization
This is an accident visualization animation of a mine accident for Xuzhou Mining Affairs Group. I used 3ds Max to did the texture, animation and rendering tasks. The animation was finished within 3 days.

4, 3D Animated Short Film: Life S*cks
This is a simple 3d animation I made at Pratt Institute for homework. All visual effects are created on my own. This 1-minute short film was required to be finished within 48 hours. I used 3ds Max for creating this film.

5, 3D Animated Short Film: Cellular Romance
This is a short animated film made for a project of the animation studio course. All visual effects are created on my own. This is the first time I created 3d animation only using Maya.
