Director Statement

I wanted to express a self-implicated philosophy on perfection and completeness by contrasting two scopes of personalities and perspectives. For production design, I used newspapers as the main motif, red and blue light sources only to emphasis the contrast. I also wanted to experiment with unprepared spontaneous acting, so I only called the actors for the shooting the afternoon of the shooting day.
