Kim-believe's Story

Animator / Director / Story artist

Los Angeles

Kim is a creative, innovative young animator, director and story artist. She believe what makes a story good is how it is told. She has learned a wide range of animation techniques so she could choose the right one to tell her story. She draws most of her inspirations from daily experiences of herself and of other people around her. She enjoys bringing back good memories, seasoning them, and sharing them back to the world. She wants her stories to engage and captivate the audience whilst instilling valuable lessons.
