Making the virtual real
Taiwan-based Grass Jelly Studio provides a complete range of video services from directing through to visual effects (VFX) production, often collaborating with iconic celebrities in Asia on astonishing and award-winning productions. In recent years, it's become one of Asia's best VFX teams for advertising and music video production, and its creations regularly hit hundreds of millions of views on YouTube.
Like many other kids of his generation, Grass Jelly Studio's Eason Chen spent far too much time reading comics and watching cartoons when he was young. His love of graphic design and animation eventually led him to the current stage of his career as a Senior 3D Animator and VFX Designer. Eason is fascinated by the idea of combining computer graphics (CG) and VFX in films, which allows him to create complete virtual sets from scratch. His measure of success is when the audience can't tell which parts are real and which are virtual in the films he produces.
