Spotlight: After DayZ

Screen shot 2013-01-29 at 11.55.11 PM

For those unfamiliar with CorriderDigital, most of they work are action-oriented featuring lots of guns and videogame references. Their latest work, ”After DayZ”, is set in a post-apocalyptic world infested by zombies. Besides the zombies, the main protagonist must also deal with the threat of other survivors who are better equipped and are only looking out for themselves.

Great pacing, love the character interactions, and the environment that they chose to shoot in, simply beautiful. Plus, it’s got a great soundtrack.

WARNING: Contains blood, violence, and zombies!

Fireworks in Reverse (Commentary)

Screen shot 2013-01-08 at 2.45.03 PM

It’s not every day that one of my video goes viral. So you can imagine my surprise when “Fireworks in Reverse” started gaining attention on the internet. BIG thank you to everyone who’ve shared my video. Looking forward to creating better videos in the future.

Five things you need to know about the video:

1) There are 4 cuts in the video (can you spot them all?).

2) The actually New Year’s Eve Fireworks display went for 15 minutes. I only picked out the parts which I though looked good in reverse and used the last minute of the display.

3) The song is “Moon Behind the Tree” by Serphonic.

4) This is NOT the first reverse fireworks video on YouTube. There are a handful of “reverse fireworks” video on Youtube dating 4-5 years ago.

5) The bokeh lights at the end of the video are actual fireworks.

Spotlight: Dol (First Birthday)

Dol (First Birthday) is a very personal story about identity and acceptance. It is a semi-autobiography about a Korean-American who struggles to find a place in his family due to his homosexuality. On the occasion of his nephew’s Dol, a traditional Korean first birthday celebration, he finds himself yearning for a life just out of reach.

Spotlight: When Five Fell

WongFuProduction has been an inspiration of mine for a while now. I enjoyed most of their shorts but this one’s still my favourite.

“When Five Fell” is a new take on the ideal boy-meets-girl love story. Although the short is told from a unique and unconventional perspective, the emotions described should be familiar to anyone that’s fallen in or out of a relationship.

A strong narrative coupled with a brillant soundtrack makes for a beautiful (maybe emotional) short. And who could ever get tired of those lovely bokeh shots? Love it.

ps. will do a write up on the fireworks video once I get the chance to. It’s been quite exciting!
