Director Statement

Hello, Thank you for watching my film.

All footage of this film have been shot by 8mm film (Super 8).

Usually, I work in commercial or music video, using digital camera, sometimes 4K camera.
This is first time of film shooting for me.
Why I have chosen Super8?
Because, many great film directors when they were young, they used to use 8mm cameras,
Thats why I wanted to experience origin of film making and what they felt.
Then I tried old style.

This is independent Film. There is no sponcer.
All of Production fee is my pocket money.
Music and shooting staff, I asked friends. However, almost made by myself.
