I came up with the whole story by listening to a foreign radio fm in which a narrator told a story about in a language I didn't understand. Whilst listening to the piece bit by bit, I was able to feel the atmosphere, I somehow understood what it was about and wanted to translate it to myself.
The whole script was created directly whilst listening to the radio. I can't go back to find out what the radio story truly was about, but to me, the story I have created and the radio piece symbolize the same mood.
It has been a very personal experience in which I have captured this moment in time and to give that experience an ending.

This story is so simple, too simple that could be a bit silly. But for me, this story is my understanding about inside and outside. Nothing in the world could exist independently, everything are relatively existed.
Which is to say, the worst thing is not not seeing it, but forgot to see. The outside of inside is outside, the outside of outside is still outside; The inside of inside is inside, the inside of outside is still inside. Then where the heck is inside and where is outside? They relatively exist.
A simple principle that suits everything we are living with. I might have made it too complicated, but you know what I mean.
This is my first year film in the Royal College of Art.
Loneliness occurs when someone is lost in himself. The one will try to find the lost part however the result may be disappointed. When people try to find the lost things to get stronger they may also find stronger powers which force them to abandon themselves even more. This transition turns out to be an infinite loop while no one can break.

Embodying voice project.
By using hand-drawn animation, I create a simple vision story of an interesting conversation between two twin girls. The conversation is very short, during which two girls are complaining about people mixing them up because of their similar looks.
The sound track is originally from BBC listening project
