Director Biography – Sunny Wai Yan Chan (GODSPEED)

F241480689 headshot

Sunny is born and raised in Hong Kong. After finishing his bachelor’s degree in Surveying at The University of Hong Kong, he decided to pursue his dream in animation. He is currently an animation student based in the United States, studying Master of Fine Arts in Animation at Savannah College of Art and Design, focusing on 3D character animation and layout.

Director Statement

Through Godspeed, I want to bring the audience close to the internal thoughts of the main characters – Emma, the mother, and Wayne, the son. The motivation for me to create Godspeed is that I want to show the kind of love that is less direct and less obvious. Whenever we feel frustrated towards our family because of the lack of expressive love, we must re-evaluate ourselves and learn to care about love that is more than superficial. Love exists in all kinds of ways.
