Illuminations with Annie Chu

In this Illuminations video I did for Oklahoma Contemporary, LA-based architect and exhibition designer Annie Chu shares her thoughts on interior architecture and how the design of space connects with people for the Bright Golden Haze exhibit.

Working: A Bored at Home Video

I originally made this short film as an entry for the cinema5D Bored @ Home Filmmaking Competition, which I didn’t win. However, we had fun making this, and people have enjoyed it. I reuploaded it without the branding and made some adjustments to the color and sound. Apparently, I didn’t do any color correction.

I want to thank my wife for helping me flesh out my idea and directing it, and thanks to Lessa for being the roommate. This is my first film using my SIRUI 50mm f/1.8 1.33x Lens, which is my first anamorphic lens. Also used to make this short film: Panasonic Lumix GH5, Rode Wireless Mics, and GVM LED lights.

Hope you enjoy!

Yes! Women in Science!

Yes! Women in Science!” explores the challenges women face in STEM careers and inspires change for better. The award-winning documentary short visits a diverse cast of women and professions about what they love about their job and advice for those pursuing a career in the sciences.

The documentary made its premiere at The WIFI Film Festival on April 11, 2019, where it was Award Nominated for Achievement in Social Progress Through Film. It screened at Twister Alley Film Festival (Award Winner of Best Oklahoma Documentary Short and Award Nominated for Best Director of a Documentary Short), Doc Sunback Film Festival, and the Tri-Cities International Film Festival. With the festival tour over, the documentary was publicly released on YouTube today, April 16, 2020.

The documentary filming process for Yes! Women Science! was a collaborative venture. Filming took place in 2017 and 2018. Guests were given questions in advance, which they were allowed to change, remove, or add to them. Guests also collaborated on filming locations, camera angles, b-roll suggestions, etc. Before the finished video was submitted to festivals, guested got to approve the video and make suggestions, including reshooting their interview.
