Exhibition & Presentation Summary


What has motivated me to make a film? Actually, when I was a junior, I made a short film around eight minutes for my Modernity project. In my modernity project film, I had depicted women’s oppressive fates during Chinese modern history, and I had emphasized the heavy role of polygamous marriage in women life during that time. At first, I did not think that I could make out a good film, because filmmaking is a really hard thing in my mind. Also, I thought that a good film required expansive equipment. But after I saw good video quality from Cannon 5D, I have started changing my thought.

At the same time, I had learned a lot about filmmaking from Kenny’s videography and postproduction courses. Since I love acting so much, I decided that I should be a role in my film. Finally, after I was done my modernity project, my film was accepted by long island film festival. From that time, I have gotten my goal, which is to make a film for my senior project.
