I am accepted by Collaborative arts in Tisch, NYU. I am always very interested in digital media and filmmaking. Therefore, throughout my application process, I have created my first documentary piece exploring my hometown Shanghai. I am always fascinated by the idea of gentrification within the city. Therefore, I have created this documentary exploring the idea of gentrification via the perspective of visual story telling from two generation. The Older generation vs GEN Z. The editing style within my film also reflected the contrast between the two groups of people. I have produced, directed, shot, casted my film myself over a span of 3 months. As for my other short film ‘ I dance because I am lost’， it is based on a dancer. I wanted to experiment the different use of aesthetic within film making therefore documentaries are used very calming and slow pace as well as following a narrative approach.
