Step by Step: My Moon

Eusong Lee is an amazingly talented director and designer living in Los Angeles. He’s also the director of the upcoming short-film “My Moon”.

For our Step by Step series, Eusong was kind enough to record his recent live painting demo he did for “My Moon”. Here you can get an inside look at his process as well as the world of background painting and the art of “My Moon”.

With only 7 days left to reach their goal, let’s all do our best to make this beautiful film a reality and help support independent animation! You can find out more info on the “My Moon” Kickstarter page.

You can also view the “My Moon” trailer below as well as some additional behind the scenes content. As a bonus, Eusong has graciously provided the brush set he’s been using on “My Moon”. You can find the download link below.
