In this beautifully animated tale, a curious fox goes in search of an elusive whale—a journey of longing and discovery. 

Director’s Statement: Robin Joseph 

Fox and the Whale was made over the course of 16 months, from initial storyboarding to final picture and sound. It was a self-financed project I made with personal savings and required taking time off from all commercial work. The team was tiny: My partner Kim Leow (who did the character animation, character models and rigs), Louis Vottero (who did the character rig for “Fox”), and John Poon (who composed the original music/theme for the film). I did everything else, from storyboarding, design, background paintings, compositing, visual FX like water/fire/particles, etc. Making the film end-to-end was one of the most challenging and rewarding learning curves I’ve had in a very long time.
