Story of "Red Noses" Mr. Red Nose is very afraid of wind, and he always wearing wind coat even when itâ€™s summer, which he hates to be like. He used to be happy when he applied toothpaste on his typical red nose into white, but sadly it was unreal. Once he turned the electric fan on, facing right against it, because he wanted to get used to the wind. He kept doing this for several days hoping it would make him no longer fear the wind, but every time with tears and snots covering his face, he started to recall those good time when he was a kid, without any red nose. He decided to leave finally, after the last routine of his red nose exercise, ending with a bunch on the switch of the fan. It is always easy to make a decision but to live with it. That night Red Nose slept so deep, under the great moonlight. The next morning, at the station however, Mr. Red Nose met a lady, with the same red nose as his. He is not alone.

Script of "Red Noses" This is a story about Red Nose, which has different endings like he quietly accepted everything, or he started to be someone else while suffering all the pain by himself. Sometimes we just do not have the courage to change because we thought it was beyond our ability, but instead of being just like us, Red Nose made a unexpected decision which helped him to understand that out there someone suffered the same pain as he did, and he was not alone. Change it or live with it, at least we should have the courage to give it a shot.

Ge kiln Script: When the hero was still a child, he used to play a lot. His father and mother have given so much care to him on the path of his childhood. We decide to make some little details, trying to present this family love by describing the heroâ€™s naughty, such as throwing the jar to the air or the chemistry between the father and mother. Out concept is that the Chinese ink and wash would be the best to present China. Although we do not have that kind of technical attainment to achieve
the unique effort, we do have found other approximate expression of ink and wash. The hardest part is to hook lines and color, and all the movements are done by our hand drawn because we think it would be more real comparing to software coloring, which lack some kind of charm of the lines. From the aspect of character shaping, we have added the element of slanted eye and also costume of Ge kiln from the Song Dynasty, trying to rebuild the ancient background.

Little Silly AI Little Silly AI
We went to talk with many business merchants at the beginning, and they were not that into this kind of cooperation with us. But after three daysâ€™ efforts, we had successfully talked five merchants into this, one noodle shop, two coffee houses, and the one we chose to work with, Little Silly AI, which is a very special inn containing four houses types with different colors and special names for every room. The merchant desired a whole set of design aiming to do the marketing, including propaganda, the design of the character Little Silly AI, postcard, bookmark, and etc. After repeated discussions and brainstorms, we had settled one solution, mainly focusing on real life stories. Since the target customers are young travelers, those stories had been characterized as friendship, love, freedom, and dream, which all are the familiar subjects for the young generation.
