A+Cat+in+Paris

Perspective turns out to be  huge challenge for us. Notice the perspective of this screen shot from Une vie de chat (A Cat in Paris)? Both of us have been taught perspective drawing in both NYP and NTU. It is mandatory for foundation students to learn perspective drawing. And for years, we have been drawing with the “correct” perspective.

However, after two weeks of trying to draw in a different kind of perspective(eg.A Cat in Paris), we realise that it is so difficult for us! The “correct” perspective has become our 2nd nature when we draw!

The Tale of the Princess KaguyaThe Tale of the Princess Kaguya - 1

The rough drawing lines of The Tale of the Princess Kaguya gives an added characteristics to the film. When Princess Kaguya got upset, she sprints off into the cold winter. The rough lines turn into harsh strokes, complementing Princess Kaguya’s mood. This gives the characters and added characteristics and we hope to achieve it in The Tiger of 142B.

Milch 3 Picture-3 UDF7H

Milch is a short film about a boy discovering his father’s affair. The story is told from the boy’s perspective and it unfolds in a dark and disturbing manner. Through the use of sound design and its abrupt editing style, it brings out the child’s depressing childhood experience. Might be appropriate for The Tiger of 142B?

We first got to know of ‘death’ at the age of 6 when our father left us. We did not give much thought to what death really meant. We just saw it as a natural process of life : Our father left us with “things” he had and our lives went on, nothing more. But having the opportunity to work with Jasmine Ng on Dr Wong’s stories in BOTH SIDES, NOW has changed our perspective towards death.

Dr Wong’s stories have taught us that departing does not always mean losing your loved ones, or an end of a person’s story. It takes on many different perspectives and forms, impacting the lives of many. It made us reflect on what our father really left us: is it just the “things” he had? BOTH SIDES, NOW tackles a topic which we all fear and yet share in common. We hope the two shorts we have created can allow people to ponder on what it means to live well and to leave well.
