“The animation is simple, yet it is very precise with a heart-touching narration. The story is closed to our daily life as market vendors are also essential workers that fulfil our basic needs,” Nia said.
When learning about the video competition, together with her team, Meysha decided to focus the story on traditional market vendors. “The story is quite personal for us as a mother of one of our team is a market vendor. It is also our first time joining a video competition and we are so happy to win,” told Meysha, beaming with a smile.
