"The Infinite"

The environment can bring me endless imagination and thinking. The title of this movie is "The Infinite," which is the word I use to describe the environment that always accompanies me. The film explores the understanding and observation of the environment by organizing the animals, plants, and people's activities captured in the Flagstaff Garden over the past six weeks. This film is a result of my exploration of the environment, incorporating my thinking and discovery of the environment. I quoted the views in the reading and substituted my understanding when editing the film. I changed the original color of the environment so that the saturation of the movie doesn't look so high. I hope to cooperate with my friend's background music and my narration to replace the original sound of the picture. Finally, when the background music is not long enough, I blend in some natural sounds of the environment I have filmed before as the end. I hope to make people think about the relationship between human beings and the environment through this film, and I also hope to explore more unique places in the environment in the future. Further, I hope the film can let the audience find the beauty of the environment, and it should not just be passed by and ignored.
