Director Biography - Weijie Deng

Weijie was born in Zhongshan, a small city in southern China. Compared with the prosperous and dazzling big cities, small cities have more distinctive pyrotechnics and a humanistic atmosphere, which also affected his insight into discovering the beautiful things in life.

In 2016, after entering the University of Technology Sydney, he choose a film-related major, trying to lay the foundation for better development in the film industry in the future. During his studies in Uni, he participated in several student film crew shooting projects, and gradually explored his own filmmaking style and development direction. Finally, he completed this film and finish his bachelor degree study.

Later, in 2020, he came to Moving Image at the University of Sydney for advanced studies and continued to explore his own filmmaking path in the process of postgraduate studies. Now, he is focusing on some film projects that reflect social issues, because movies that are often rooted in real life are more impactful, and this will also be the focus of his future work.

Director Statement

'SHUT DOWN' is a sci-fi suspense film, with the worldview and sci-fi concept as the main selling point, setting a lot of suspense and clues in the film to stimulate the audience's aftertaste and thinking. Although this is not a film with the theme of plot and heavy tone, I hope that the audience can enjoy the cinematic worldview and the concept of science fiction which I have conceived.
