Director : Huang Yun-Sian

Huang Yun-Sian was born in 1982 into a craftsman's family in Changhua, Taiwan. Sian started selling her dough at a temple when she was a child. After graduating, she ran her original brand in the Creative Product Market with her unique modeling ability and dough-crafting skills. Sian believes that stop-motion animation and dough-crafting both emphasize the unique "handmade" spirit. She hopes to show the different facets of the declining traditional culture.
