Abstract: The purpose of this project was for me to develop a number of stories and ideas that I could further develop upon and expand into bigger projects after the conclusion of my studies. The central driving theme that I wanted to explore in these stories was the idea of being Asian‐Australian. The result is a collection of 6 films which are in various stages of development and completion, all of which can be viewed on the included DVD.
Though I strove and was hoping to present 6 complete and polished films, it was not an imperative of this project to actually complete the films. Rather, this project was more concerned with my experience of discovering Asian‐Australian stories, and my filmmaking practice as an Asian‐ Australian. The project focuses centrally on the developmental, pre‐production and production phases of the project.
