An Interview with Najib Basirun.

I remember growing up so close to people telling their stories; from my dad, films, comics, games, and Youtube videos. I used to wonder why I love consuming them so much, and I realized that all those things that I still love today connect me to people. That’s when I realized what I love doing, connecting with people through stories! In the future, I would love to tell more of my stories that represent the culture and place of where I come from. I want to see more characters that look like my friends and me and to have those opportunities one day would already make me feel like I have a successful career because I get to inspire the kids, that were once like me, who love stories.

How did you get involved in working in film and animation?

I have always told stories of my creation through many different mediums; writing, photo editing, video producing, and more. So I thought: why not try animating next?

What is one piece of advice you could give who is interested in going into film and animation?

Have a growth mindset, you are going to be constantly learning in this industry.

Why do you love animation?

It’s a medium of storytelling that lets me be creative with no limits.

What is an animated film, you highly recommend someone see?

The House on Netflix.
