One Small Step Screening & Panel

May 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free – $15


Gallery Nucleus is proud to present a special screening & panel of Taiko Studios’ first short film One Small Step. An original short film that follows the story of Luna, a Chinese-American girl who dreams of becoming an astronaut. Join us at Gallery Nucleus on Saturday May 12th, 2018 (6:00 PM – 10:00 PM) and bring your questions for the Taiko team as they present their work process and discuss their experiences working as an independent animation studio. Artworks of the team’s designs will be on display!

TAIKO Studios was founded in 2017 by CEO Shaofu Zhang in both Los Angeles and Wuhan, China. As a truly international company, the studio endeavors to bridge eastern and western cultures together to create memorable stories with universal appeal.

UPDATE **Due to high demand, we will be offering THREE separate screenings of the film. Only the first screening at 6pm will include the panel and book signing. The last two screenings are screenings only. Select artists will remain in attendance until final screening. You must RSVP in advance via Eventbrite and select the screening you would like to attend. Max 2 RSVP per person.
