SHERWYN WONG

3D ANIMATOR

I am a story-driven 3D animator from Malaysia who is passionate in character development and creating high-quality animation. Also, I am versed in a wide range of animation styles, techniques and software programs. My goal is to entertain, inspire and relate to the audience through my craft.
Animation has shown me it is not only about giving life to characters but to live and appreciate life in the moment.
