The Legend of Lin Ban-Sian  林半仙傳說 

2021, 3min 33Sec.

This is a folk legend from the Lin-Yuan area of Taiwan, about a geographer from China. The local people called him Lin Ban-sian, the name “Ban-sian” means that he is a prophet. He stayed in Lin-Yuan by chance, because the local people believe in feng shui, and there are many special terrains with feng shui terms, and this story connects these geographical terms into a story. The animation story is a collaboration between local elementary school students and a group of university volunteers majoring in animation. The elementary school students are involved in the production of characters and scene design, as well as the actual filming process. The university students assisted them in the operation and guidance, and performed the local legendary story from the children's perspective.
