Teaser trailer of a short film I am working on. Well, technically, it is more like an exercise, since the entire setup is very simple, just me and a few friends trying to experiment with our equipments and various cinematic language.
We spent a sunny afternoon shooting this one, and perhaps expect one or two more days to finish the rest.
If you are in Beijing, please support my friend Wun Yip's new film "The Next Minute"'s screening! Both Wun and the producer Joe Lau are fellow AND artists!
I've been pretty busy working lately, not much to update...
came across four time Olympic golde medalist Ben Ainslie at the America's Cup event in SF, his team is competing at the tournament with ten other teams, including team from China...

In the Bay Area, Oakland is always the spotlight of the occupy movement, violent protest, conflicts, gun fig...Read more

While I don't totally agree, it is true that if your sole purpose is to reach a wide audience, film festival is no way comparable to streaming v...Read more
Last weekend I didn't have much to do and went hanging out with friends. We came across some posting on the web and found a silent film screening at night...Read more
I was watching the news just now, seeing the crowd celebration in NY somehow reminds me of the final scene of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi when the rebels are celebrating the Emperor's death...
Will the world become safer? or will there be more bin Laden in the future?
Seeing the social media panel ad, it just kinda reminded me of a question I got asked a few times before by my friends:
friends: "Hey, man, your blog sucks, there is no sexy girls and you talk about crap every time, how can you get so many views?"
me: "Thank Edison..."
Certainly, reputation is the most important. If you're Andy Lau or Stephen Chow, everyone would like to check out what you are saying, you don'...Read more
