Editors Review: 
The Moment the story captures emotions beautifully ,The visual artist’s work speaks volumes not only because the visuals are splendid and captivating, but because she has excelled at story-telling. The short film starts with street noises, and the sound of a pencil working against the coarse texture of paper. A street artist is sketching when a stranger startles her with, He asks her to sketch him. As she does, his eyes keenly watch her and her pencil. The animation style that reflects the protagonist’s vocation. Her assertions abou the implications of detail in drawing, Oh creates flickering lively irises and continually shifting strips of colour that suggest the movement of hair in the wind. This skill for depicting nuanced observations also results in the film capturing mundane movements, and these are utilised to signify the passage of time as the girl draws, taking the already beautiful visuals to a more surreal and meaningful level,There is a calmness in the film that touches you, and makes you feel the short film. The Moment It gives you a moment to realize how truly important it is to feel things. It took Karis Oh almost two years to complete this short film/
