Emilys workshop and the Cats World International Animation Festival
A few days ago, I visited my friend Emily Wong. She is a very talented animator, specialized in stop motion. I went to see her workshop at the Artist village near Shek kip mei station. The building, that in the past was a factory and was supposed to be destroy, is now a great place where artists of all kinds have a space to create and show their art. Emily’s workshop is very small but very nice and cozy.

Then, a few days after my visit to Emily’s workshop, I went to see her again at the
Cats World International Animation Festival outside the Cultural Centre in

Emily, among many other animators, was participating in an open air public workshop, where people can just come, experiment and have fun trying different kinds of animation.
Emily, of course, was in charge of the stand with the stop motion animation. It was so cool because people could make their own mini film in a few minutes and then have a DVD copy of it to take home.
