THE FINAL CUT
Made with love
in SF, and LA
Before the re-shooting in September,
Ric and I came up with a love story
of a couple from their summer to the fall.
To tell the story in a music video,
we had to keep it simple.
We used a photo taken by a Polaroid camera,
made it flow with the narrative,
and we crashed the Polaroid camera to
create a metaphor of the break-up.
First time shooting for the music video
was in March, back when we missed
the part of story telling.
After the first cut, Ric and I realized that
we need to re-shoot the narrative
to make it a good one.
Yes, we directed the music video,
both worked as the cinematographer.
I did all the post, Ric also acted as the boyfriend
whose face shows only in the ending scene.

Doris' new EP was released at Xiami Music,
so was the Music Video of In The Night.
wish you a bright bright future!
10 secs 9:16 promo video for
the EP and the music video,
to promote on social medias,
for a better screen fit and UX.
Before sunset, when was the perfect
3 minutes for shooting, at the same time
where was freezing cold on the Twin Peaks,
super windy and super cold!
And there was thorn grass everywhere,
we made it through by me carrying all the devices,
Ric carrying Doris...
We had so much fun making the video,
bitter-sweet memories through the process,
but all ended up with a good one.
