Private Project

A Dirty Night

It is a rainy night. Rob stands and keeps staring outside the window. All the things that happened within three hours keep coming to his mind. He wants to arrange them in order and think through why he stands here, how he becomes a murderer and why he is facing some policemen with their gun loaded.

Director Statement

I had a part-time job in a convenience store. I saw some bad things happened in it. So I thought I could use a film to tell a story about that. I spent two months to create this idea and write a story with my friend Yang. Actors and Crews was also a problem. As a foreigner, my social network was limited. We just posted audition information in websites. We didn't still find good actors for this short film although we received some casting request. Fortunately, we solved this problem through The Actors Workshop that is a famous school about acting training in Brisbane. As the mentioned, There was some fight scenes in this film,which is so so difficult for us even some professional filmmaker. In order to keep the actions in fight scenes being safety and good-looking, I and my DOP tried to fight by ourselves in lawn and develop actions depending on the shooting location. Sometime we hurt ourselves due to the action of Kungfu, however, we thought it was worthy. Moreover, I made some props with production designer, such as the fake fire extinguisher. And I went to a few shopping malls looking for costume with the DOP. In whole production, we just spent approximate 24 hours in total within three nights shooting this film. It is too rush. Fortunately we finish them although we were exhausted.
