Thank you to watch my video. This is the last work of my life as a student, which is my graduation project movie. I have been working for it from August 2018 to May 2019. Before starting the project, I never thought that I could even finish it. During this period I learned things on is not only a technology and art, but also learned so many experience outside film.
Chris' character is inspired by Wenjie Ye from the novel <three-body >, who is also disappointed with human beings and also connects with alien colonial rulers to rule the Earth. Even though I can only express very few in my short film.
Even after finishing this short film, I am not satisfied with it at present, and I think I still have a lot to be studied. This short film is like a mirror and I can see my own position clearly.
At the same time, I would like to thank my friends, teachers, partners and classmates for their help.
