"You never forget how to ride a bike"


This lock I had it since year 2000 when I was studying in high school and the last time I used it was in year 2008. After spending 3 years in Beijing, when I held it again I couldn't recall the combination. Somehow magically my hands just reacted to it and unlocked it. I guess it's just like the old saying "you never forget how to ride a bike". In this case would be "you never forget how to unlock your combination lock" and hopefully it apply to my art skills as well :D

~RelationShrimp~



After 7 month,finally this day has arrived. The day I putted down the last stroke to the film. I know this is not the best film ever but I did put in lots and lots effort in to it. This is defiantly the best piece of art work I produced in Sheridan,I am very proud of it. In here,I want to thank everyone who ever helped me on this film both physically and mentally, really appreciated, this film couldn't finish with out you all. Too many things had happened to me during these 7 month, once again thank to people who gave me strength when I was weak. I feel ready for the next chapter of my life, thank you all and wish you all the best~

Testing Testing~

video
This is the another test run from clean up to compositing. As you can see it has many mistakes but I sure learned a lot from this attempt. with this experience now I can finally able to see this film as a whole and understand what to beware of in clean up, scanning, labeling, coloring and compositing. It really helped, I am glad I did it because of it, now I have more confident of what I am doing now. I know this is not a really pleased result to show on the blog but however I still decided to post it out because it's a important mile stone in my film production.

About the film~

video

This is the most updated of my working process. Few of the scenes were changed therefor the timing is slightly different now. I hope the new editing and refines enhance the film.

This is a quick testing for photoshop clean up actions I got from a friend. It worked out quit well, if there no "accident" this would probably the final look for the whole film~ Thank you James!!!

Reel #4~

video

This is the 4th editions I came out with... again, I have changed a lot of things, and hopefully this version can get the message across to audience. I have received many wonderful fee back from many people, thank you all. I was taking all the advices very serious and tried to make a film that contents all the ideas and gags. But after all I was confused, I realized that I can't possibly to produce a film that everyone likes. Therefore I decided to make a film that would please me the most and wish the humor within would make you enjoy as well. Once again thanks for all the great ideas and suggestions.

色/戒 Lust, Caution



CAST
Tony Leung 梁朝偉
Tang Wei 湯唯
Joan Chen 陳沖
Wang Lee-Hom 王立宏
The latest movie direct by Ang Lee, the Oscar wining director he is also the director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain. I watched it during the reading week. I have to say, it is another master piece done by Ang Lee and it moved my heart deeply. This film has such depth that I believed only watch once is not enough. The story is very solid and staged nicely with many beautiful shots and music but no cheesyness. This movie only be showing in the selected theaters if you have a chance, watch it, and you wont be regreted!
