I have recently watched Blade Runner 2049 and woah! It was such an incredible film to watch. Every single frame pays an homage to the original somehow and it's quite beautiful.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Weekend! We would like to start off this week with a Cyberpunk-feel inspired experimental short film entitled: Muse. Superb soundtrack by Morgan Willis, we are invited to watch a bunch of short sequences taking us through a journey of the imaginary future world and space. You might feel some resemblance to movies like Blade Runner and the recent movie of Ghost in the Shell. Let's give a beautiful accomplishment and shout to Guangyu Li.
"MUSE" is an experimental short film that intends to take you on a journey through the imaginary future world and space. Today, we live in an era of technology, which keep changing almost every aspect of our lives. However, I am wondering if technology could bring us a bright future or not. I have always obsessed with science fiction stories and films since I was a child. Therefore, I decided to direct a computer-generated short film to present an immersive and unique tomorrow’s world to the audiences. At the stage of concept and narrative, I found a lot of inspiration from conceptual works and sci-fi films such as blade runner 2049, ghost in the shell and works from concept artist simon stålenhag, et al. I spent three months working on this graduate film at the last period of student. Meanwhile, this is my first time to direct a completed film individually. There are many shortcomings and problems in this film, but I still enjoy the process of directing the whole film from zero to one.
