Seeking You

Short Film, 3d Animation, rotoscopy and digital photography, 3'17, 2008

A man lost his love. He decides to go out and find her in the night of Hong Kong, only to realise that it's not with her he's in love, but with the city itself.

“A poetically ambiguous ode to sensuality, seduction and, ultimately, the cacophonous beauty of Hong Kong. Its hybrid imagery dances between the figurative and abstract, pulling the viewer into a vortex of sensory overload inspired by the film’s subject matter.”
