The Moment of Beauty is a short film which I directed and created in 2014.
I wanted to create something beautiful and memorable as my original short film and to share my creative experiences. This is the main reason why the moment of beauty was born. I was thinking about what beauty is for me. What makes me feel it is beautiful. So I searched so many images and artworks that I feel are beautiful and amazing for me. In my mind, one example of beauty are details such as particles and lines etc, so I was focusing on creating some imaginary world made of particles. Another aspect of beauty for me is light. I spent some time to get the light to move and shine, and twinkle as if these lights were alive. Also the balance of light and shadow, colors, and transparency feeling. Thus, there are several things I perceive as beautiful every day, so I collected my thoughts and combined them together to make the moment of beauty
