The Floating Life

The work was shot in Waidun Village of Haikou City, inspired by a conversation with an old man. The short film tells the story from the protagonist's own perspective: in an ordinary fishing village, there is an ordinary fishing village boy who grows up with his childhood sweetheart and grows old together. During the girl's inspiration, the boy successfully broke through himself, overcame his deep-sea phobia, fell in love with the sea, fell in love with the girl, and accompanied him for life. In the short film, a large number of scenes combining fantasy and reality are used. For example, in the clip of playing on the sea floor, the plot of character rotation is combined with the plot of character growth, and the creative switch between the lens and character is used to summarize the character growth.
