It all started in 1993 with frame-by-frame animations in black and white with Hypercard, a revolutionary Macintosh Classic computer Rolodex that can play "cards" sequentially with a simple script. In 1998, KJ made his frst live-action film with his classmates, a stage play of King Lear. After realizing that his acting abilities always succumbed to uncontrollable giggling, he went on to direct more films in high school, undergraduate, and then finally getting his Master in Fine Arts at Emerson College.
