LIGHTS – North by North West (Part 2)

Last week we took a trip up the North Island by car to Auckland and back. The trip was to accept an award for a writing competition, but we made the most of the ongoing New Year’s events as well. The second part of our trip: the Auckland Lantern Festival.

Soundtrack: “Brocade River Barcarole” – Matteo (The Sichuan Project, 2012)

20/46 – Asian Short Story Competition (2nd Place)

Last year the New Zealand Society of Authors ran their annual Asian Short Story Writing Competition, in conjunction with the Asia New Zealand Foundation, for writers of Asian descent. Recently I found out that I won second place for this competition, and so I will be going up to Auckland to attend the ceremony at the Lantern Festival this weekend to receive my award!

Here’s the story that I submitted for the competition, titled 20/46. (And yes, the Wong Kar Wai reference is deliberate.)

Video: Twelve years later

Last week I went to the informal twelve year reunion for the primary school that I attended in my youth. Even though I hadn’t seen some of these people in over a decade, we were talking as if the last time we’d seen each other was only recently. It was a great time.

Connie

promo

You’ve probably figured out by now that “production diary #0″ which I posted yesterday was actually a preview for a solo project I’m working on, titled ‘Connie’. Call it an experiment in bedroom filmmaking, if you will.

“production diary #0″ was actually constructed as a screen test for me to see if my idea worked out in practice as in theory, but I figured it’d work as a trailer too. The story for ‘Connie’ branched off from the flipside of a short story idea I had, which was “would it be a blessing or a curse to live next to a musician?”.

I hope you’ll enjoy it when it’s finished!
