We had a chat to director Oliver Chen, who spoke to us about pulling the film together in just a few days:

“I came across this project a week before the deadline while working on a Genero project for a friend, and I had an instant connection with this song with a vision of a story surrounding a girl. We needed a background story for the plot and we discovered Vivian Maier, a street photographer from the 20th century, whose closed-off attitude to theworld outside of photography struck a parallel to the lyrics of the song. After making the connection, the story kind of just came together by it self with the lyrics”

We didn’t have much time in our hands with finals being that week, but with the utmost dedication of our small crew, we came up with a product that we are very happy with.”

Congratulations again to Oliver and his team! We can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
