Seoul X Unknown Artist - Hyeyeon Lee

0.61% of the land area of Korea, distance between north and south 30.30km, distance between east and west 36.78km. Seoul, which became the capital of Korea in 1394, is a living city itself where diverse people and cultures coexist. There are many artists who are not yet known but working with their own beliefs. Seoul X Unknown Artist Project will be a digital film archiving project that introduces those artists and their works and beliefs. Hyeyeon Lee, an illustrator and painter, was born in Seoul and studied illustration in San Francisco. She returned to Korea in 2018 and is currently working as a freelance painter.

4th of Ohio

Visiting rural Ohio during the Fourth of July in 2016, the filmmakers turned an observational lens onto the people of Morrow County. Documenting a 95-year-old native, his multi-generational and multi-racial family and public celebrations of the national holiday, they created a short ethnography in cinéma vérité style.

Post Ebola - Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone has endured a period plagued by one of this century's largest health threats. The country is currently paving the road forwards while facing the challenges of its own recovery along the way. This documentary short provides us with insights from the people who work at Lion Heart Medical Centre and are performing life-changing work on a daily basis. I believe these people are setting an important example for humanitarian aid organisations by showing continued progress towards a state of independence. Their motivation, strong dedication and cross-cultural collaborations were of great inspiration to me.

Canon C100 ii, FJ SuperX 400

A mother's worst nightmare comes to life as her 3 year old daughter, Catherine, vanishes suddenly and without a trace. As the mother searches frantically for her child it becomes clear that she will never see her beautiful baby again and that Catherine was never lost. LOST was filmed on a zero dollar budget and was made to bring awareness to the unknown personal trials and horrors associated with the degeneration of the mind, with the hopes of inspiring sensitivity and patience with those who suffer from such conditions.

Little Trees

Little Trees is a experimental short film that was shot, edited, color graded and sound designed by Reggie A Brown. With "Orson Welles War of the Worlds" 1938 radio broadcast playing throughout in this experimental film, I had a strong focus on abstract editing with a old school 16mm film feel - mixed with a new age digital feel, and music that causes dread along with a solid sound design. No audio was recorded during the video recording process, instead, the audio was later recorded and replaced in the post process. My goal was to make this short in a way that'll be memorable and make the audience say, "that was fucking weird", but they'll like it anyway.

This feature film explores the boggled mind of Elliot; a teenager who is haunted by the death of his mother and sister who were killed during a family camping trip. But Elliot can only remember partial segments of that misfortune. As he tries to piece together all of the events that lead up to their tragic death, his memory is triggered by certain objects - a bracelet that his sister Ellie wore, pictures of his family, newspaper articles about the death of his mother and sister, a jewelry box, fire, and a bell.
