Sparkie is an animated short film written and directed by Jerome Hereng, and created by the team at Sparx* - A Virtuos Studio. The main character is Sparkie – an AI robot working at Sparx* Studio. The original art concept of Sparkie was created by artist Nguyen Tan Thanh. The character has a lot of Vietnamese flairs added to the design, from elements like the conical hat, tattoos, ‘phở’ to motorbikes and the iconic Asian-squat. Like most Sparxers (Sparx* artists), he is clever, humorous, and resourceful.
