Shin started messing around Animation at the age of 8 — Use cardboard boxes, Lego, computers.

When I introduced him a few years ago, he was on track to produce professional-looking animation.His decision to attend Oregon Virtual Academy That really inspired his passion.

At the age of 14, Black Plasma Studios hired Shin and his flexible lesson time was important. It helped him continue to produce more advanced animations for years.
