Canadian artists bring Sook-Yin Lee's DNTO stories to life
In 2009, DNTO stretched beyond audio storytelling and embarked on its first foray into animation.
We chose a few of Sook-Yin's favourite personal stories and invited three Canadian artists to bring them to life. Animator and visual artist Jon Izen took on Sook-Yin's story of a childhood crush and turned it into True Love.
Filmmaker and writer Ann Marie Fleming re-imagined Sook-Yin's story of a go-go dancing competition gone wrong in I Won.
And Jim Goodall used stop-motion animation to create a technicolor version of Sook-Yin's story Orange.
But DNTO didn't just do animations — here's a music video for Sook-Yin's song "Beautiful", directed by filmmaker Andrea Dorfman.
