Animator Yukai Du creates vibrant and intricate illustrated animations for all kinds of stories. Her catalogue of wondrous work for Ted-Ed has seen her bring to life topics ranging from plant communication to self-driving cars.
At Nicer Tuesdays, she delved into the painstaking process for her latest short about the Hubble telescope, How small we are in the scale of the universe. Showing the dedication and patience it takes to be an animator, Yukai explores the whole journey from sketches to storyboards to shot lists to animatics, right through to the hundreds of beautiful and highly detailed illustrations for the final film.
