I am a writer and the director creating my own writing style that reflects my interest in the transformation of humanity between time and space. In this regard, I want to express highly sensational visual imagery by an amalgam of German Expressionist style and Japanese Animation style, the manga to deal with the controversial subject matter. This content will deepen humanities conscience and questions what it means to be human beings by usage of Satoshi Kon's way of editing in time and space.
In doing so, my concentration in writing and directing focus on the human condition. The Human condition is challenged by a circumstance where he/she is situated. He/she can transform from evil to good or vice versa. In order to deal with a psychological aspect of the human condition, I want to create a visual world that is a hyper-real world where the distinction between dream and the reality blur. With creating such puzzling and confusing world explores my thesis on transformation.
My visual world is highly minded bothering not only because it tells about the complexity of human mind but because it also deals with covert messages that associated with religious symbols and religious contents. By usage of color representation, I want to create two different worlds that contribute a mirror image to each other; an inner mind of characters and an external realm the world people live in. In doing so, identifying and differentiating myself from other filmmakers would create my own brand. I want to illustrate my visual film language aligned with vibrant art movements from Renaissance period to baroque period carrying out the theme of ambiguity in between reality and dream as well as a gender role. To achieve this, learning from paintings and drawings of Leonardo Da Vinci and Caravaggio would benefit to succeed in my goal creating myself as the brand.
