Filming | Directing | Editing

This video was made at the end semester of the undergrad. I directed this film with the help of another two of my classmates.

 

By analyzing the script, the camera position, light, scene switching time, I tried to reproduce the imitate relationship between Nadia and Simone and the pave the way for their emotional conflicts.

I specially chose two Cantonese actor/actress and asked them to use Cantonese to do the dialog rather than Mandarin, which help to make them easier to get relaxed; also, using Cantonese may add another layer of old HongKong movie's style to the black & white film.
