Dad Carried Her On His Back. She Carried Him In Her Heart.
Scene City: Run Chicken Run
“No matter how far or fast you run, I will always catch you!”
This is an annual Chinese New Year affair for a father who plays catching with his daughter in mascot costumes. And he is trying to catch her home for Reunion Dinner.
Chinese New Year is a time of togetherness, hope, faith and love, and this explains why I’ve used animal mascots in this short film as they represent the Chinese zodiac.
I wanted to show that life is a cycle - and this is portrayed through the Chicken and Dog chase scenes between the Father and Daughter.
