Short Films

Silence is an independent project about a girl who chose to ignore a robbery she witnessed in her apartment staircase, only to have the same incident happen to her a few days later. I used metaphor to externalize the girl's thoughts and regrets by seeing herself in front but walked away.

After the screening, our class had a passionate discussion about social responsibilities and the role of an artist facilitating social progress.
During this process, I learned how to work with visual communication methods that could invoke empathy and thus influence my audience.

My role: Director and editor.
Goodbye, youth

I selected the opening part of this 20 minutes long short film as I responded to directing and editing of this part, including shorts design, storyboard, and editing. This is a four-person team project, and I took charge of lighting and background music and sound effects for the rest of this film.
Please contact me if you are interested in the whole story.

My role: Director and music editor.
Midnight Melody

The story was inspired by my experience of learning music since I was a kid.

My role: Director and editor.
One Day

What kind of day would you like to spend in your life?
One day is an experimental film that I tried to use aural and visual to tell two different stories. The story formed with sound effects is a busy and exhausting workday. And the story formed with pictures is about a fun and relaxing day.
By doing this, I want to reflect on the reality that people have no choices but have to work every day to support their lives.

My role: Director, editor and actress.
