"Forgive Don't Forget" Documentary
During Japan's surrender at the end of World War II, numerous swords were confiscated by American officers. In order to better understand the past and build a bridge between cultures in the present, a filmmaker attempts to return one of these surrendered swords to its original owner.
I got involved with the Forgive Don't Forget team back in 2011 with the first round of funding. I was brought on as the Animation and Visual Effect Director. After years of work, I'm so excited the film is on the festival circuit. Check out http://fdfmovie.com/ to stay updated on where is playing next. Below are some of the sequences I worked on for the film.
