Glad to have you finally pipe up, Elgin. Keep it coming. And if only someone would hire me to direct commercials (gasp!).

Hello everyone,

I just recently graduated from the National Film & Television School, UK in Documentary Directing but have been working as an editor for about 5 years now. One of the biggest projects I have edited is The Edge of Dreaming by Amy Hardie (one of producers is Doug Block).

Now I am sending my documentary Miles Apart out to festivals which I shot in China and developing a new chinese documentary about a chinese investigative journalist.
Because of my Chinese Malaysian origin I always wanted to connect myself with my chinese roots which has been tricky as a born German. So last year I went for the first time to China to make this film about a rural family that is effected by the industrialization and I really fell in love with this country.

Am happy to be part of this group and am looking forward to chat about more things with you!

Fantastic to have you here, Ling. I can't tell you the number of compliments we've received for The Edge of Dreaming, and it's in no small measure due to your efforts. Looking forward to your new film.

Hello folks,
I'm an emerging, non-union Director of Photography / Camera Operator with over 10 years of experience working on national TV commercials, music videos, and feature narrative films. My years of working in still photography gave me an extensive understanding of lighting and composition which I've segued into my cinematography. Although, I have no experience in non-fiction storytelling, I am extremely passionate about documenting the truth. As Federico Fellini once said,"My fantasy is to make something REAL". So, please feel free to contact me whether or not your next project calls for a Director of Photography and/or Camera Operator.

I look forward to meeting and hopefully working with all of you.

Thanks,
Mike
