Abstract:
Pursuing the path of a creative in Hong Kong? Feeling that the odds are often against you? Indeed they are, but it doesn’t mean the path isn’t worthwhile. Combining graphic design and film in her visual storytelling, Nicola will share her creative process and approach to her projects; her experience starting out on zero-budget shorts to earning the opportunity to direct her first feature length documentary She Objects, which explores traditional and new media’s influence on young girls and women in Hong Kong. Nicola will also share the lessons she has learnt from paving her career path as a Graphic Designer and Filmmaker, as well as tips to creating your own space and niche.
