Gachapon Girl stemmed from an idea that I’d conceived years before, which I shared with my Final Year Project teammates (Chua Eng Chee, Tan Hong Jin, and Nathan Adianta).
These are some concept pieces and character designs I made for the visual development stage of the film. I wanted to explore ways to transform Singapore’s skyline into something vibrant and energetic – even romantic. The overall vibe was inspired by the Daishi Dance remix of Mika Nakashima’s SAKURA ~Hanagusumi~. (Unfortunately, I can’t find an official video/link of this remix.)
