The second promotional video for Chinese Spring Festival Gala, 2015, DC.

This is an emotional documentary about the feelings of Chinese students in DC: how they came here along and got all together. We planed this topic to illustrate the meaning of the gala and Spring Festival - to get people together. The footage was shot in two days and editing was finished in one day. My regret about this video is that I should direct a little bit more - the talking styles of two characters are so different that I can not blend their talks more.

The third promotional video for Chinese Spring Festival Gala, 2015, DC.

This video is a gala preview. The main idea is to show the preparation of performers before the gala. Footage was got in 3 different afternoons.Editing was finished in one day. I hoped I've shot more footage about details (getting off coats, opening instrument case, tying shoes, etc.) and kept more original sound to remix the soundtrack.

The first promotional video for Chinese Spring Festival Gala, 2015, DC.

This video is made to show the general idea of Chinese Spring Festival and arouse the question: what should the real spring festival look like (instead of just red and dragon). The footage was shot in one afternoon and editing is finished in the evening.

I'm happy with the editing which created a relaxing mood, but some footage is definitely not in a good frame.

In this video, Michael McLoughlin, the Chief Engineer of the Revolutionizing Prosthetics program of Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, de-black-boxed the main technology of the most advanced prosthetic arm with neural feedback, which turned to be a great conversation with our other interviewees, including a prosthetic designer, an IMES (implanted myoelectric senser) prosthetic arm tester and a DEKA arm tester.

All footage was taken in 3 hours, on Peacemaker Award Gala 2014. Editing and animation was finished in two days. Without extra lighting, my footage is not really in satisfactory quality. But I'm happy with the audio recording and editing in consideration of the real ambience noise on the gala.

Soundtrack: Harmony, by Snowflake; Goodbye War, Hello Peace, by Teru.
