“My name is Linus Chung. I am a film director and I live to express on films whether it is a short film or afeature film. For me films are a capsule of our lives capturing in visual form our hopes, our dreams as well as our regrets and being such a medium it evokes emotions allowing us to reflect upon ourselves that will hopefully also initiate growth as living breathing beings as a capsule upon which an understanding of self, society and circumstance is contained. As for work, I hope you’ve found me to be a good potential collaborator in delivering to the needs of your company and hope we can have fun and do good work together.”
