“Bingo Night” is my final project cut for the Motion Picture Editing course at USC. This comedy film is about Granny Ethel receiving a notice of eviction from her retirement home. Insisted on staying, she co-conspires with Vivian and Ruth, plotting to rob the local bingo hall.
In March 2020, during COVID-19 shutdown, I spent two weeks creating this microfilm “Door” with my only friend around. It is a thriller about a couple getting trapped in a sketchy church, never have been able to escape from the door. We shot the film in a little Catholic church on campus, which was an interesting experience that brought a bit of joy to our depressing quarantine life.
High School Films
‘STARLIGHT’ Filmmaking Club
In September 2015, I started a filmmaking club with some of my friends, which ended up recruiting 30 members. Our goal was to make one 30-minute microfilm per semester that could truthfully represent our student life. We made two microfilms in 2015; the latter one, "STARLIGHT”, went viral and resonated with all our fellow schoolmates.
'STARLIGHT,' sharing the same name as our club, was the last film we made in high school. I was the chief producer, main editor and one of the main actors of this film. The movie is based on the club’s cofounders’ real-life struggle as we were caught in the middle of dream and reality. With high hopes to make quality films and tell meaningful stories, we started the club only to watch it fail due to the heavy academic pressure faced by our senior film crew… The film impressed teachers and parents, and struck a chord with every student who was once on the same boat. I’m proud that our film had the power to motivate our peers, bringing them comfort and making them feel heard and understood.
