Chelsea Fashion & Film Festival 2014

My short film “Mother’s Gift” was chosen to screen at Chelsea Fashion and Film Festival 2014 on November 20th. I never heard of the film festival, but heck it was only $10 submission fee, it will be screened on a nice venue, and it was accessible with the NYC subway. Judging by the name, there will be a fashion show too. The festival was held at church like venue, and upon arrival, there was a bouncer checking IDs. I was … Continue reading

Codes & Modes at Hunter College

As a documentary filmmaker, I am always going to interesting events and conferences to expand my horizons. I went to a panel called “Documentary Film: Art or Agenda? Competing Paradigms in the World of Non-Fiction Film” at Hunter College. Joslyn Barnes hosted, while Whitney Dow, Julia Haslett, Jonathan Oppenheim and Jennie Livingston discussed documentary form and funding. First, in regards the title of the panel, “art or agenda,” I feel that the panelists definitely expressed their views in interesting ways. … Continue reading

My week at Cannes

I started taking my filmmaking endeavor seriously 3 years ago. As my skills progressed, my films have been featured and have won awards in several film festivals around the U.S. But nothing compares to what was in store for my crew and I last year when we won Best Picture at Hunter College’s Campus Movie Fest with our short film “This Moment.” Along winning a cool Director’s chair trophy, our film gets a chance to be selected to screen at … Continue reading

2NE1 @ MTV Iggy’s Best New Band 2011 concert

It is just unbelievable. Yeah, I still can’t believe it. It was Monday, December 12th. I never thought in my life I would see the k-pop group 2NE1 live in MTV Iggy’s Best New Band 2011 concert. I listen to a lot of music, mainly Rock music, like Punk, Metal and Alternative. But I have a soft spot for pop music, especially international music from Korea and Japan. I haven’t listen to K-pop since the late 90’s with group such … Continue reading
