Q: Why do you make videos?
I make videos because I love and enjoy it. My movie making process requires creative thinking, massive planning, and out of the box techniques. The best part is creatively solving problems during the production process.
Q: Where do you get your ideas?
My ideas come to me in the least unexpected moments. For example, I can be walking along the beach when suddenly I think about how cool it would be to reach out and move the sun. This thought inspires me to create a film that explores the possibility.
Q: What is the most enjoyable part of your work?
My favorite part of film making is special effects editing since I can use innovative visual technology to change and play around with the world I live in. To me, this is where the magic happens
Q: What is the hardest part?
The most challenging part is to find a unique, original idea. At the same time, this is also what makes this type of work interesting.
Q: Who is your inspiration?
Right now, Zach King is my greatest source of inspiration. Even more than the amazing videos he makes, I love the way he uses film to tell a full story using complex human emotions. He can be funny, surprising, and unexpected all within a few seconds
Q: What tools do you use?
I start by shooting with Panasonic 101 video camera. Then I add effects with Adobe After Effects and edit the sound with Adobe Premiere. I also use Photoshop sometimes for some of the effects.
Q: What is the most exciting response you got?
It’s hard to pick just one since I get excited each time someone responds emotionally to my videos. I was very flattered when I was asked to do a TV interview as well as when the CEO of a major agency invited me to work as their filmmaker at the age of fourteen
Q: What would you like to achieve in your life?
I am currently fulfilling my dream. In the future, I want to develop further into the film industry and someday own my own movie productions studio.
