Michael Gregory Fung in 'Sylvester and the Giant Gummy Bear'

Short film Sylvester and the Giant Gummy Bear chronicles the misadventures of a young Chinese-American boy with an un-bear-able thirst for corn syrup. After eating an off-limits gummy bear, Sylvester must cover his tracks before his mom gets home, and before his babysitter realizes what's happened.
 

Sylvester was made for Jason Lucero’s Intermediate Narrative class, New York University Tisch School of the Arts, Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television.
