Having Fun in the Mountains-Go to Cinsbu to Make a Film

Ian and Ike are brothers. The precocious old brother has a keen interest in making YouTube videos and wants to try his first YouTube video in the mountain forests! The younger loves to play tricks on his older brother, and is always laughing when he succeeds in his tricks, and never misses an opportunity to play tricks on him!
This time, Ian and Ike will bring their cameras and go to the giant trees in Cinsbu, to shoot a " Hakka version
of mountain forest film"!
There is much more difficulty to reach the giant tress of Cinsbu than other mountains they used to visit before.
Will they be able to find the giant trees? Will both of them, who usually love to fight and tease each other, be able to assign the work and get the material of film they want?

Director Statement

A child’s imagination flows without limits; the mountains produce infinite possibilities. We hope to provide a bridge between the children and the mountains. We will launch a mountain adventure with children, developing children’s imagination and representing children’s feelings of interacting with nature intuitively.

Also try to share the idea with children: As long as we are willing to go on the road, we can realize that life does not have to fit any specific model and we are always capable of creating diverse lives.
