A personal project with friends telling Arisa’s story.

The key crew members, Luc-Yan, James, and me, Dixon, we wanted to challenge ourselves to improve our visual storytelling and make a short film. Luc-Yan approached the tone and feel of the film to be contrasting between dark and light, and I helped pick the locations to accompany that tone and feel of rooftop and boxing ring closed set to control the lights. Lastly, James was in charge of the camera gear and lenses, and how the film should be shot.

Luc-Yan’s storytelling showcases the internal battle of both worlds of dark and light that Arisa must face.
