Sealed Memories | 封存的记忆 (2020)
Photographer | 摄影：冯欣
Production Designer | 美术指导：刘汉仪
In Sealed Memories, the photographer, Feng Xin, aimed to express sorrowful memories through highly saturated colors and props hidden with meanings, exploring how these memories would be processed by ourselves. This presented a huge challenge for the art department - creating a diverse range of prop designs and productions within a single project. The materials involved in each set were incredibly diverse, necessitating repetitive testing and adjustments. We utilized dozens of materials, including PVC, colored cornstarch, foam rubber, dried branches, and various types of fabric. The process was fulfilling and rewarding.
Tianfu Internet Cafe | 天福网吧 (2020)
Feature Film | 剧情片
Director | 导演：李宵权
Production Designer | 美术指导：殷华
Assistant Art Director | 执行美术：刘汉仪
In Tianfu Internet Cafe, Director Li Xiaquan attempts to construct a subtle narrative between a Chinese internet café owner and an undocumented worker in Ireland. The challenge of this production lies in utilizing an empty cafe in Beijing to simulate the look of one overseas.
In terms of art design, we primarily emphasized a fusion of Eastern and Western aesthetics. Chinese elements such as the Lucky Golden Toad figurine, indoor plants, fish tank, and Buddha shrine area were juxtaposed with English signs and merchandise to suggest an overseas setting.
Additionally, within the bounds of legality, we created and designed numerous graphic works that fit the storyline, including resumes, fake websites, group photos, and identity documents. These well-integrated pieces played an essential role in the film, conveying essential information within the narrative.
