Director Statement

Art, particularly film, in my meaning, is the code that I use to communicate with the different form of the world around.
My philosophy of art is simulating the abstract of nature into visual language. I choose to learn the worldview through the point of root. I perceive that if I want to understand the all being, I need to resource my inner core. So that, my art works are essentially contain human vs. nature and the conflict between the internal and external. I want to highlight the complexity aspects in my inner-self and eventually portrait the deeper level of human’s sub-consciousness.
Art reflect the expanding of my world mind. So after every works, I always want innovate my art language in the concept and the style of narrative. Camera motion, lighting style, set design, sound and so on are my special material to tell my story.
