ESSENCE OF REGENT
This film was commissioned by Regent Hotel group 晶華酒店 for their 2015 global corporate campaign.
In Chinese culture, characters have been composed through "symbolic forms" and "philosophical meanings," which also became the essence and backbone of traditional Chinese aesthetics.
Our visual expression of this project is based on capturing "symbolic forms" and "philosophical meanings.“
We have choreographed the dance in portraying the meaning of the characters and the movement to capture the form and strokes of each character.
This visual art of dancing calligraphy balances out the philosophical essence found in Chinese culture of"movement and internal strength."
