I deliberated for a few weeks whether to post this up.
I finally decided to do it because I’m so busy these days that I need to employ more lazy blogger tricks.
Today’s lazy post is a YouTube video. Haha.
I didn’t want to post it up at first because there are some physically-intimate shots in it involving me and it’s weird posting something like that knowing that family and relatives read my blog.
But, what the heck. I’m sure they can handle it. It’s nothing sleazy, anyway.
A quick background first.
This is one of the films I did for NYU Tisch Asia graduate film students last year. It was their very first project and shot on Super 16 mm film.
(If you were reading my blog three months ago, you’d have seen my posts about it: Flat 7-Up doesn’t taste very good and Last day is for camwhoring.)
The requirements of the project: 4 minutes, black-and-white, no dialogue, no music.
The video you’re about to watch is the director’s cut. It’s in colour and has some musicky stuff in it, but it’s otherwise the same film that was submitted.
It’s called Mara’s Playground and I play the role of Mara.
So, here it is! Hope you
like understand it.
