To celebrate'Devils, Angels & Dating' reaching 2 Million views on YouTube, we wanted to check in on our talented team members to see where they are and what they've been up to since they worked on the film. This is a conversation with talented Animator, Bryant Tan.

Tell us about your discovery of 'Devils, Angels & Dating', then what you ended up working on during the project.

I was introduced to this online animation collaboration project by my friend Marcus Tee. I was so excited back then when I heard about it as I've never being exposed to work with an independent director before. I volunteered to take part immediately as a 3D animator and my aim back then was to gain more knowledge in terms of acting and to build a much more solid portfolio. Mike was so friendly and kind enough to let us choose the shots we would like to work on and of course I went for a couple of subtle acting shots. Throughout the whole process, I came to learn that online collaboration actually works if you have a proper pipeline to it. I've also learned about ways to choose proper acting for your shot through the reference provided.

What were your thoughts, hopes and concerns about the project at the time, and how do you feel about it now?

I'm really grateful that Mike gave me that opportunity to work on such a wonderful film and I'm still very proud of it today.

Did Devils change the way you approach your career at all?

Devils made me want to explore more about animation and film making.

Whathaveyou been up to professionally since your involvement in Devils?

I've worked on a couple of films at Rhythm & Hues Malaysia( Animation TD) such as Snow White & The Huntsman and also the upcoming Seventh Sons in 2015. Remember to catch that movie!
