Huang Yu-Chen first started writing Blue Eyes Call Small Ears when she was in third grade, after she had to be fitted with a hearing aid due to a genetic disorder that left her hearing affected. Her older sister, Huang Yu-Hsin, helped her to refine the story, and illustrations were completed by their classmates. With the help of their teachers and classmates, they turned the story into a ten-minute animated video. The video was entered into the Taiwan International Children’s Film Festival in 2008, and then went on to be shown at the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, and won awards such as the Taiwan TV & Film Expo’s Little Golden Bell for best children’s short film and the Canada Children’s Film Festival prize for best children’s animation.
