Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Erick Oh will chronicle his creative journey from his early days as an animator at Pixar working on such memorable films as Monster University, Inside Out and Finding Dory through his indie years working on the award-winning animated short The Dam Keeper and subsequent series PIG: The Dam Keeper Poems, ultimately leading up to his Oscar®-nominated animated short, Opera. He will then speak in depth about the creation of his latest collaboration with Baobab Studios, NAMOO, a hand-crafted, narrative poem come to life. Inspired by the passing of Erick’s grandfather, NAMOO -- which translates to “tree” in Korean -- follows the beautiful and heartbreaking moments of a man’s life, from beginning to end.
