Episode 012 --- pplpleasr

pplpleasr, aka Emily Yang, is a director and 3D artist influenced by anime, video games, underground music, and traditional Asian art. We talk about her nomadic living situation, the impact of her environment on her work, bypassing traditional paths and a career spent finding backdoors, coming of age in the public eye of the NFT boom, forming her studio Shibuya with one of her favorite artists Maciej Kuciara to help change the way films are made, working with Bruce Lee's daughter, and her penchant for manifesting.
