Director Statement


When I made The Cook and the Chef, I wanted to make a film that had a personal message. To me, it’s not enough for a film to show off a cool visual or a cool story if it doesn’t show yourself. The Cook and The Chef is a film about the under dog in an age where popularity matters more to people than skill.

I wanted to animate a lot of technically impressive scenes with unique character designs and fun movements. I really wanted to pour my entire talent into this film as to prove this film itself is an under dog.
